My brother was sentenced to 200 hours of community service

This answer was rated:

My brother was sentenced to 200 hours of community service for misdemeanor about 13 years ago. Never did it, left the country. Now he would like to visit me, but is afraid that he will be stopped when entering the country. Is that correct. Is the sentence still valid after so many years?
JA: What was the conviction for exactly? Have all appeals been exhausted?

don't call me

Thanks for the information

 

You really don’t need a call and it will rack up costs.

 

The short answer is that he will have been breached and there will be a warrant for his arrest.

 

Whether or not it is still live at airports is another matter. You really never know with airports security. But there is a risk.

 

If he comes to the attention of the police then it will be live.

 

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need more information.

sorry, just one more thing, even after 13 years there will still be order for arrest?

It will still be live on PNC.

It might not be flagging up on airport security though.
