The RHO and Probation order

A conviction leading to a probation order becomes spent three years after completion of the probation order. If the probation order was for one year, the conviction becomes spent three years after the successful completion of the probation order: i.e. four years after the date on which the probation order was made. Once spent, the order need not be revealed except in situations covered by section 4 of the RHO: applications for positions specified in that section.
