Can you tell me exactly what I should say to offer the out of court settlement - I am prepared to pay any amount/take whatever action to avoid getting a criminal record.
Will appealing in court about this damaging my career opportunities have any effect at all?
Finally can you tell me how long it will take for the criminal record to expire and for me to have a clear record again? Thanks
Understood. By appealing I meant attending the court date and asking that the outcome doesn't result in me getting a criminal record even though I admit I am guilty - based on the grounds that it will damage job prospects. Would that not work at all?
I will call them tomorrow to ask about out of court settlement, can you tell me exactly what to say please? I know it's hard to say but do you think a corporation like London Underground will even consider this?
