SEX offenders, child abusers, traffickers and stalkers are among thousands of North-East criminals to escape prosecution after confessing to serious crimes.
Concerns have been raised over police use of out of court disposals after an investigation found they had been used against guidance for major offences.
Rape, child abduction, arson with intent to endanger life and grooming were among the grave crimes resolved via ‘community resolution’ by the region’s forces between 2014 and 2018.
The disposals – used more than 35,000 times in the North-East – are designed to tackle minor offences and will not appear on criminal records or basic DBS checks. They are not classed as convictions.
A nationwide investigation conducted by The Northern Echo in conjunction with the BBC’s Shared Data Unit analysed more than 430,000 community resolutions and found that they had been used against guidance for thousands of serious crimes which could otherwise attract a jail sentence.
