The Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and those with criminal records
The Rehabilitation of Offenders Act, 1974
Under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act of 1974, after a period of time (rehabilitation), some criminal convictions become ignored or “spent”, and convicted criminals are no longer obliged to disclose their convictions, thereby allowing them to move on with a normal life. Convictions will however remain on the Police National Computer.
The Act is subject to the conviction type and is aimed at minor convictions. The rehabilitation period will vary depending on the court sentence imposed (it is not determined by the offence).
Please refer to the full Guide to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act for further details.
