OBS client avoids Interim SHPO

Jill Joyce of Old Bailey Solicitors successfully avoided an Interim Sexual Harm Prevention Order (SHPO) being imposed on one of her clients today.  

Had the Interim SHPO been imposed, our client, a man with no sexual convictions to his name, would have been subject to significant conditions which extend beyond the reach of the criminal law.  He would also have been forced to comply with the requirements of the Sex Offenders’ Register, despite never having been convicted of a sexual offence.  

The police application was based on a non-sexual conviction from 1995.
