Dont’t worry, they haven’t been abolished, simply had a name change. What used to be a section 10 ( A non conviction order, is now a community release order without conviction (CRO). A CRO (Section 10) dismisses someone’s charges without proceeding to conviction.
What is a CRO? (section 10) ?
A CRO allows a Court that finds you guilty of an offence, to discharge you without recording a conviction. Because there is no conviction, there is no criminal record. (Criminal Records Act 1991)
Does a CRO (Section 10) show on a police check?
A CRO without a bond or intervention order will not appear on your criminal record and it gives you a second chance to not commit a crime again.
