Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
What was the exact charge and what sentence did you get?
Yes it will be spent now so you do not need to declare.
It also wont show up on a DBS check as it will be filtered out if you need one,Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Yes rules change a few years ago under the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment Act 2012
Does that clarify?
Obtaining property by deception is S.15 Theft Act 1968
If it does not show on the list, it will be filtered
Hi there the above answer is wrong - the filtering system only applies to standard and basic checks because in enhanced checks the police have the option of including additional information from the person's police record which they believe is relevant to the application. So even if the offence would have even automatically filtered from other DBS checks, in an enhanced check they can manually add whatever information they believe is relevant and that can also include details of offences which normally would have become spent or filtered out. So if you are having an enhanced check done then this offence can show up potentially for life, if the police believe it is relevant to the application you are having the DBS check done
Hi there it was my colleague's answer that was wrong, i am a different expert so I was just correcting the initial response you had received from them. If you have any further questions please let me know. Thanks
