Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
So did you receive any penalty at all?
What level DBS (the new name for CRB) are you having done?
But is it a basic, standard or enhanced one?
An absolute discharge is, under the new rules from a few years ago, spent immediately. Therefore, it should no longer form part of a Standard DBS check, as that only shows spent and unspent and unfiltered convictions, and this is neither of them. However, if you are having an Enhanced DBS check, then it may still show up, so as long as you are sure it is a Standard check, it should not show up.
