Google removes search results of person with spent conviction

/ / Google, News & Media

Today, the Guardian has published an article on Google’s response to the ‘right to be forgotten’.

In response to a particular example on their website, Google said: “A man asked that we remove a link to a news summary of a local magistrate’s decisions that included the man’s guilty verdict. Under the UK Rehabilitation of Offenders Act this conviction has been spent. The pages have been removed from search results for his name.”
