As for before I changed my name etc, I was arrested once when I was 15. But though I was held for 5 hours I was never charged. When I was arrested most recently and they asked had I been arrested before I decided not to tell them about the event when I was 15 as I'm not sure it counts. It also would have outed me at a time when it really wouldn't have been safe to be outed.
Sorry if this post is a bit incoherent.

I simply put my current forename (female) and my previous Surname ( unchanged from male) with details such as place of birth etc., despite a minor conviction as a male, the result was a clean report.
I have a greater fear of the United States immigration service as they require that anyone with even the most minor conviction or even an arrest on record to have a VISA before entry to the country. The UK ain't so bad really, all considered etc.

people from the UK can go to the US for three weeks i think under something called the 'Visa waiver program', so even with a criminal record you could chance your arm......wouldn't want to get caught out tho.....probly get sent to gauntanamo!!
John I think after 3 yrs any conviction is classed as 'spent', though i don't actually know what that means!! ..lol..sorry..
I used to be a contract driver for the prison service.
Convictions for murder,child sex,rape,most drugs and fire arms remain "unspent" for
for whole of life. So things like that can still come back to haunt you.
As we all know America doesn't live in the real world. I think that Evan the smallest conviction
will result in them treating you as the biggest threat to security since ever.
In one U.S town it's Evan illegal for a man with mustache to kiss a woman!!!!.
