Thank you for your question.

There is no such crime in Scotland. What were you convicted of?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.



This may still be on your record. There is no time after which your record has to be cleared by law although in practice many convictions are removed by the state from time to time after the passage of typically 15 or 20 years.

It can be the luck of the draw whether they remain on your record or not.
