Hello! My name is***** you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.
Is this your first offence?
Because this is your first offence it is possible that you will be offered diversion. That is where the Crown agrees for you to make amends to society in an alternative way such as by making a donation or doing community service. If the Crown agrees to this approach once you complete your requirements the Crown will withdraw their charges. That would mean you would not end up with a criminal record.However, because this was not something like a shoplifting case but because you were in a position of trust it is possible that the Crown will consider this to be more serious and will not agree to diversion.If that is the case and you are convicted you may end up with an absolute or conditional discharge which would mean that in somewhere between 1 to 3 years you would no longer have a record.Does that help as a starting point?
