Spent Convictions in South Australia


In South Australia, the Spent Convictions Act 2009 sets out the law on when a conviction is not disclosed on your criminal record. A spent conviction is a conviction that can’t be disclosed and will not show on a police record check. A conviction is spent immediately if a court finds an offence proved or a defendant guilty but orders that no conviction is recorded against them. Otherwise, it can be spent if the conviction is pardoned or quashed, or the qualification period has lapsed.
