245 Criminal Records Expunged Between April and June

first_img The expungement process helps individuals who committed minor offences and who have sincerely and successfully attempted to abide by the law to reintegrate into society. Clearing past convictions from persons who are committed to being law-abiding citizens will assist them in their efforts to improve their quality of life and help build a justice system that focuses on rehabilitation. Story Highlights The Ministry of Justice has recorded 245 persons who have had their criminal records expunged for the period of April to June 2017 with a total of 570 records expunged so far since 2017. Press Release- The Ministry of Justice has recorded 245 persons who have had their criminal records expunged for the period of April to June 2017 with a total of 570 records expunged so far since 2017.The expungement process, done under the Criminal Records (Rehabilitation of Offenders) Act 1988, has seen a steady flow of applications from persons looking to have their criminal records cleared.The expungement process helps individuals who committed minor offences and who have sincerely and successfully attempted to abide by the law to reintegrate into society.Having convictions removed from their records can increase an individual’s earning capacity, as employment in certain industries such as education, tourism, security and transportation, require a copy of a clean police record for their employees. The process is also beneficial for persons interested in migrating or working overseas.Under the Act, certain minor offences such as simple larceny, malicious destruction of property, possession or dealing in ganja, bribery and forging of documents, among others can be cleared from a person’s record after a specified period of rehabilitation.The rehabilitation period is the time a person must wait before their application can be considered for expungement. An amendment to the Act in 2014, reduced the rehabilitation period from between 5 and 20 years from the date of the termination of imprisonment or the payment of a fine, to between 3 and 10 years based, on the seriousness of the offence and the sentence imposed.For individuals under the age of 18 years old, the rehabilitation period is half the time applicable to adults.Clearing past convictions from persons who are committed to being law-abiding citizens will assist them in their efforts to improve their quality of life and help build a justice system that focuses on rehabilitation.To have a record expunged, interested persons must make an application in writing.This can be done by visiting the customer service section of the Ministry to collect the application form or by downloading the application form from the Ministry of Justice’s website.The applicant should complete two copies of the application form and submit them along with two letters of recommendation, fingerprint impressions and the payment of $3,000.00 for the expungement service (this can also be done at any tax office island wide) to the Customer Service desk at the Ministry.last_img read more

Lance Armstrong to Admit Drug Use to Oprah

Lance Armstrong plans to admit to doping throughout his career during an upcoming interview with talk show host Oprah Winfrey, USA Today reported late Friday.The interview, scheduled to be taped Monday and broadcast Thursday night on the Oprah Winfrey Network, will be conducted at Armstrong’s home in Austin, Texas.Citing an anonymous source, USA Today reported that the disgraced cyclist plans to admit to using performance-enhancing drugs, but likely will not get into details of the allegations outlined in a 2012 report by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency. The report led to Armstrong being stripped of his seven Tour de France titles and banned for life from the sport.Armstrong representatives, including his attorney Tim Herman, declined comment. The New York Times first reported last week that Armstrong was considering making a confession.Armstrong, 41, who vehemently denied doping for years, has not spoken publicly about the USADA report that cast him as the leader of a sophisticated and brazen doping program on his U.S. Postal Service teams that included use of steroids, blood boosters and illegal blood transfusions.Winfrey’s network announced Tuesday that Armstrong agreed to a “no holds barred” interview with her.A confession to Winfrey would come at a time when some of Armstrong’s legal troubles appear to be clearing up.Any potential perjury charges stemming from his sworn testimony denying doping in a 2005 arbitration fight with a Dallas promotions company over a contract bonus worth $7.5 million have passed the statute of limitations.Armstrong faces a whistle-blower lawsuit filed by former teammate Floyd Landis accusing him of defrauding the U.S. Postal Service, but the U.S. Department of Justice has yet to announce whether it will join the case. The British newspaper The Sunday Times is suing Armstrong to recover about $500,000 it paid him to settle a libel lawsuit.Armstrong lost most of his personal sponsorship — worth tens of millions of dollars — after USADA issued its report, and he left the board of the Livestrong cancer-fighting charity he founded in 1997. He is said to still be worth an estimated $100 million.Livestrong might be one reason to issue an apology or make a confession. The charity supports cancer patients and faces an image problem because of its association with its famous founder.The New York Times reported Armstrong might make a confession in an attempt to return to competition in elite triathlon or running events, but World Anti-Doping Code rules state his lifetime ban cannot be reduced to less than eight years. WADA and U.S. Anti-Doping officials could agree to reduce the ban further depending on what new information Armstrong provides and his level of cooperation.Armstrong met with USADA officials recently to explore a “pathway to redemption,” according to a report by “60 Minutes Sports” aired Wednesday on Showtime. read more
