Some convicted killers and sex offenders will have criminal records wiped to help them find a job, government says



Some convicted killers, sex offenders and drug dealers will effectively have their criminal records wiped under new plans to help ex-offenders “turn their lives around”.

Those sentenced to more than four years behind bars currently have to disclose their conviction to employers for the rest of their life, including for offences committed as a child.

But David Gauke, the justice secretary, wants to scrap the rule to make it easier for ex-offenders to get a job.
