For Jo C
He didn't actually deny the offence, as I think the CCTV footage confirmed that he had hit someone as part of the overall brawl.
I was meaning more that the actual document he signed (The caution itself) is inaccurate as it has down the wrong name for the victim. The person it says he assaulted is my son's friend, who certainly was not assaulted by him. Does this mean the caution it is invalid? And if so, what would there be any point in trying to get it nullified on those grounds.
Hello again Jo
Thank you very much for that comprehensive response.
I had supsected it may make things worse to appeal, but was rather hoping the written caution he has received would be rendered invalid due to its inaccuracy.
And yes, as an anxious mum, I am hoping it will not affect him in the future. I know it is not the same as a criminal record, but it could show up in an enhanced CRB at the moment . However I've read the Home Office may have plans to change the laws relating to what people have to disclose when applying for a job, so hopefully, by the time he's graduated, the system will have changed.
