do u deal with criminal law. I was made to take a restraining order by 2 cps prosecutors after various threats and insults after they dropped a cass against me. However afterwards I realised they did not have the power to make one they had to ask the court for one. I was basically lied to in order to agree to one.
My questions are, are restraining orders discloseable. Do they come up in crb checks. Do they prevent me from training in a profession such as medicine or law?
Well they had to request a order from a bench after the prosecutor told them I had agreed to one. Even then, the bench asked the cps if my father and sister agreed to it, which they said yes, they both claim otherwise. The clerk also told them there needed to be grounds to which I had to agree to there being arguments and friction between me and my father. This suggests to me that the CPS need to convince a court to grant one rather than enacting one. The cps told me both parties (father and sister) requested one and I would ruin my relationship with them if I didnt agree to one. The order was not to to harass or threaten my father.
I was also told it was better than an acquittal after a trial, because no evidence was offered and an acquittal would only mean not enough to convict rather than innocent. However, in getting the order they stated the "victim did not wish to proceed".
Sorry my original questions were;
does this come up in a crb check?
Are restraining orders discloseable
Does this prevent me from training as a solicitor (i.e would the SRA accept me) or other regulated professions?
There was no realistic prospect of conviction as my father made 2 inconsistent statements with no physical evidence or witnesses, which he then withdrew. We also had a sworn statement from the arresting officer pointing out the original allegation was completely different (throwing liquids, although he was not wet), and only changed when they could not arrest me on that.
They could not get a summons, because he sent medical evidence absenting himself from court pointing out he took medication which cause confusion and hallucinations.
