Disclosure & Barring Service - successful defence

Geoff Payne and Natasha Lloyd-Owen have successfully defended a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) barred list prosecution. The defendant had been prosecuted for applying for a job whilst on the DBS barred list. After making representations on the first day of trial the CPS reviewed the decision to prosecute and offered no evidence. We were instructed by Matthew Elkins at Richard Nelson LLP.
