Being silly some years ago, I broke a window in a bar, nothing like that since, nothing like that after (2004) BUT this stays with you for 100 years.  Police Cautions (given to less serious crimes whhere in this case I admitted through caution and paid to correct the damage! rightly so) should be stepped down and not visible on a normal CRB check and should only be available to the police or as part of a enhanced CRB check.  The way the law stands at the moment if I want to be a receptionist in some instances I need to declare this!  surely one misdemanour shouldnt mean you could be exposed to insurance refusal, job refusal for the rest of your life….

Why is this idea important?

To restore proper civil liberties and remove unnecessary intrusion into peoples lives after 1 silly and out of character mistake.
