If you don't have a criminal record nothing should show

As I said previously he'll have to sign on the sex offenders register regardless of DBS (previously CRB) checks. So much to manage, young fans, other players children, mascots. It may not be seen as a privileged position but people do look up to footballers.

Think you are in danger of confusing the normal DBS check with the enhanced DBS check.

1. For the vast majority of jobs you do not need a DBS check

2. Most DBS checks are on the standard basis and allegations that are not proceeded with would not ordinarily be on them

3. Certain jobs require and enhanced DBS check. In those case, the Chief Constable of a police area has to consider whether to disclose the information regarding allegations not proceeded with or other "intelligence". It is not automatically disclosed and the police have to be able to justify the processing and disclosure of such data and it is also covered by the GDPR rules.

I didn't say you were defending him.
However this type of offence is deemed bad enough even within the prison community that this type of offender is kept away from the general population. Its a crime thats deemed one of the lowest of the low.
But this is my point - who judges that it's the lowest of the low? Is having sexual activity with a 15-year-old worse than killing someone because you were driving recklessly? (I've worded that simplistically, but you get my point).

Everyone will have a different view, shaped by their own experiences in society. So because everyone's interpretation of a crime will be different, we have to place our faith in the judicial system, which says Johnson, on his release, has been sufficiently punished and, with safeguards and monitoring, isn't a danger to society.

To impose additional punishments (I.e. you can't get a job as a non-league footballer) because of a subjective construct (I.e. it's the lowest of the low) is wrong and dangerous in my view.

Certainly not convicted prisoners - but surely that is actually one of the outcomes of the judicial system.

Length of sentences is a reflection on the severity of the nature of the offence.

I think he should be allowed to play football again as long as the club that signs him realises that all he would be allowed to do would be train and play games with no outside commercial activity in conjuction with other players or fans.

Yep, and that's the point I make in my post. It's for the judicial system to decide, and not for society to inflict additional punishments and judgements.

Spen. in my job in the public sector you always need an enhanced check, and I've never known the police not disclose that someone has been 'interviewed'.

Unfortunately these days quite often the punishment doesnt fit the crime, usually far too lenient. There was a case yesterday of a woman who swindled £67k from various places being given a slapped wrist and told to repay £731. Is that a fair punishment? I doubt she would be trusted to look after anyones accounts after that.
Different extremes I know but it goes to show that sometimes people do get off lightly.

There was some mention above that a criminal conviction leads to your application for work automatically being binned. Obviously you have to look at the role and the conviction but a mistake should not count double against someone. As long as the conviction is disclosed I will consider them.

Really impressed with the balanced discussion about this. I presume he'll have to sign on the sex offenders register for life and any contact with children would be assessed whilst in this country. We wouldn't know if there are other players subject to this. Given what he earns from the monies he already has does he need to work?


Agree - this is a very mature debate!

I got my DBS check done earlier this year which came back clear, totally clean, despite having a couple of convictions as a minor and 1 as an adult. Did not even show that I was interviewed 12 months ago as I was released with No Further Action, though I aint sure if it was a Standard or Enhanced Disclosure, I just assumed my convictions are spent now.

As for Adam Johnson, I dont think he should be allowed to play again and be put back in a position as before he went to prison. Anyway does he really need to work, according to some sources he is still making 250 stacks a year on investments and is still a multi-millionaire

No one seems to be considering there's a possibility A.J. might of genuinely learnt by his (big) mistake!

i.e. he's done his time, understood what he's done wrong, been punished and won't re offend.

I believe that people can change - whether he has or not is another matter.

Quite a lot of offenders probably are the same but that doesnt mean they can walk straight back into their chosen profession.
Sex offending teachers and dodgy accountants for example.

Like that teacher from Durham going with young lads they have been handed harsher punishments than folk who have done worse crimes to make an example of them as both were in the public eye a lot (Johnson more so). There was a lot of s*** storms when clubs tried to sign ched Evans event thougth he was appealing his conviction at the time, imagine if a club tried to sign Johnson, chairman and management would get death threats so in that note no ones likely to sign him.
