Have you guys ever heard the term, 'Spent Convictions'?

In a nutshell, you have a record for, theft, let's say and you go to jail for 6months.

You now have a criminal record and this stays 'on' you for 7years. Now, if you stay out of trouble for these 7years, your conviction is now seen as spent (though you still have a criminal record).

Now, what I want to know is, would you have to declare this on a job application?

I know certain jobs (with prisons, schools, government bodies etc) are exempt and ALL convictions must be declared.

Once the conviction is spent, you do not have to declare it unless you are applying for certain positions IE nurse, teacher, doctor.

The time scale for the conviction to be spent varies upon the offenses and the sentence/fine imposed.

Certain convictions cannot be spent.

For more info look here.
Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974

I couldn't possibly comment mdshunk ;)

It didn't involve animals, women (young or old), children, porn nor genitalia.

That's all that matters.

No, he left the computer on whilst he is outside gardening. I have been looking through his posts on here and well as far as i can see he has described me as a drunk husband beater, well two can play at that,

Has he told you about the time he got arrested for jumping off the local bridge naked into the harbor while as drunk as a skunk.

How about the time he was caught looking at a porn movie by my mother.

The time he came home drunk with his mates and put 6 eggs in a pan and tried to microwave them.

And the best yet when he set fire to the cats tail.

Funny you mention it, only today I enquired after an application pack for Group4 after spotting a rather provocative bit of text on one of their recruitment :mad: (No intention of taking a job with them :D I also note that they require what's termed an Enhanced Criminal Records Bureau checks, Home Office CTC checks.

Yeah right when I was on the Yarlswood Det. Centre build Group 4 couldn't even stop the East European labour passing their access passes to their mates through the mesh, blokes hiding under tarps and whatever being smuggled onto site and back off. P!ss up and brewery!

I'm knackered anyway as many moons ago I refused to pay two years of parking tickets after the drop forging factory (7 days a week!!!) over the road had the council paint double yellers outside my house so they could conveniently back their wagons in. Apart from the dheer cheek I had to park my beloved Rover P5 50yrds round the corner and out of sight and NO WAY was I doing that, not in this city.
Eventually it ended up before the beak where I told the court exactly what I thought, probably had a bit too much to say for m'self and told them "b0ll0cks to your fine, I'll take the days."

Fair enough Carter, 14 days in the 'Green' it is. (out in seven)

Spooky, Ch4 News are doing a handwringing piece on Yarlswood right now. oh God NOOOOOOOOO! it's Kieth Vaz bitching and whinging.

OK the crazy woman has gone, password changed and computer will not be left unguarded again.

To set the record straight.

My trousers were on fire and i jumped into the harbor to stop myself getting burnt.
It was not a porn film it was a adult education film.
Cant argue with this one.

Going back to the original question on spent convictions they will still appear on some CRIB checks irrespective of the age or nature of offence. This is not from personal experience but that of a family member who was convicted of ABH thirty years ago and is employed as a Senior Carer in a residential home. When the check was done, last year, this conviction was listed even though the punishment received was a fine and six months probation.

I had to provide CRIB documents to work in a school and was also checked against the sex offenders register. I was ok on both before you ask.
