police caution/ verbal warning?!Watch
If it was only a verbal caution and he was never arrested or anything, I don't think it will necessarily be a problem for medicine. He does need to get a bit of a grip though - crying all night this far in advance of his application is hardly a great start.
he was accused of shoplifting. he is depressed because he thinks that it may appear on his CRB check and will be not accepted, bec. of this, as well he dont have idea if it is caution or verbal warning... first time he had a close meeting with a police, so he have been in like shock. as he informed me he wrote to unis but in fake email to get their views, but didnt recived yet any response. He is strong personality, but he is so concentrated on careere , doing till now everything to achieve it, left his private life for it when this caution/warning situation happened.
if it was all admitted at the time as a case mistaken identity, then should be no need to worry......
If not and if he committed a crime then it's a criminal record for a v. naughty boy!! He needs to be fully truthful with you about it as you are kind enough to be helping him and sympathising with his plight.
i would be tickling him too if he had been guilty of it!! )
-Nothing he can do about it now anyway!
He should be okay, I've been in similar situations with the police* on more than one occasion and I got into med school with no problems and my CRB was clean. Tell him to take it easy.
*Not shop lifting. Or for stop and search, before you ask.
Formal cautions will show up on your record, but it's unlikely that they'd contribute to losing a place at medical school. If he were proven to have shoplifted and the issue was serious enough, I'm sure he would have been convicted of doing so. If he wasn't convicted it's not a strict ground to not admit him in my opinion.
He will not have a police record.
If any of the first sentence is not true, or your friend has hidden details of the incident from you then my second sentence is of no use.
