Spent Convictions


Spent ConvictionsA spent conviction absolves an offender of the burden of having a criminal record.

During the sentencing process, submissions can also be made for an offender to receive a spent conviction.  The court must be satisfied that the offender was a person of prior good character and not likely to re-offend in the future.  It must also be established that a criminal record would have an adverse effect on the offender, usually in terms of securing employment.
