Scottish Law Questions? Ask a Scots Lawyer
I applied for a basic disclosure and it was clear. I also worked for disclosure Scotland for about a year. I know there is a weeding out of about 20 years but I am worried given that the new home secretary has advised that certain convictions can never be weeded out. Certainly as i want to work with children the ROA does not apply but I am unsure as whether I was discharched or admonished.. I did wait for 6 months after my first court appearance for a second court date and was then cleared with no fine but I am not sure how this will affect me. It was attempt and not actual assault and I haven't had any contact with the police since.However given that a weapon was quite foolishly involved I don't know how this will affect my future. I am a dedicated teacher and have been working abroad in public schools under my basic disclosure. To be honest I just want to continue my proffession at home. Can you direct me anywhere that would allow me to seek out this information as I can't apply for an enhanced disclosure myself.
