Had a case against me and went for a volantary interview

Customer Question

Had a case against me and went for a volantary interview after the interview officer told me not to expect to hear from them I then went on holiday. When I came back I called the officer to see if it was going any further she told me it wasn't and there wouldn't be anything on my record. It's been 3-4 weeks since we last spoke does this mean it's totally over now?

Hi. I am a criminal specialist.

Were you given a bail date?

Expert:  Jo C. replied 11 months ago.

The officer specifically told you that there would be no further action?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I wasn't aressted and yes the officer told me there would be no further action
Expert:  Jo C. replied 11 months ago.

No but they do usually give people a date to reattend.

If you were told that the matter was formally NFAed then that will be the end of the matter.

Formal NFAs are pretty rare now as they have to build in the victim review but that would have been done by now.

I wouldn't worry about this.

Can I clarify anything for you?

with the that there's nothing to worry about? I'm only worrying because I've never been in trouble with the police. Also o have a shotgun licence if it was going any further would they of taken that off me? When I spoke to the officer on the phone if it was going further would they have to tell me?
Expert:  Jo C. replied 11 months ago.

What was the allegation?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
The allegation was that I was masturbating in my van but the lady didn't see my penis Bare in mind that where I was accused of doing it was a road I lived in for around 10 years so I know a lot of people round there so I wouldn't be doing something so stupid. I've spoken to this lady before as I know her to speak to but don't know her well.
Expert:  Jo C. replied 11 months ago.

They are not going to revoke a shotgun licence over that.

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Ok so should I stop worrying now?
Expert:  Jo C. replied 11 months ago.

Yes, I wouldn't panic over this.
