Man withdrawn from potential barrister Job

He had a driving offence and had convictions from when he was younger. He admitted that he was 'naive' at the time and regretted such decisions.

I was a shell of the man who had been on top of the world only a few weeks earlier. My wife was equally devastated. She had taken every difficult step with me over the past five years." He claims...

"It all went heartbreakingly wrong for me. I have a driving conviction – and 10 days before I was due to start, the CPS withdrew my dream job offer because of it. I was registered at the Bar as a fit and proper person, and I am a registered child protection officer – but none of that mattered."
