Dear Theo, Criminal record

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by regencyrob, Mar 11, 2012.

  1. Dear Theo,
    Over 10 years ago I came to the aid of someone being attacked - I punched the attacker and injured him - however, I was charged alter with ABH and given 100 hours community service for using force above that deemed acceptable for self defence.
    When filling out an application form should I put the mitigating circumstances in the 'information about offence' section or just put the date, offence and sentence which is requested?
    Should I also include a separate letter to the head outlining the incident or leave it?
    Thankyou for your advice!
