Alex Watts : A Byelaws Offence successfully Prosecuted does not lead to a Criminal Record nor to an entry in the Police National Computer (PNC). However, Magistrates Courts deal with Railway ticketing irregularities along with other Criminal matters brought to them by the Police and CPS, so it does sometime arise that a PNC entry is made. (In the event that this does happen, they are notoriously difficult to remove or qualify once an entry is made).
Alex Watts : There is nothing you can do.
Alex Watts : She will be offered a solicitor at the station which she can accept or reject.
Alex Watts : She will be interviewed when fit to do so and asked her side of the story.
Alex Watts : The police are likely to then release on bail pending further enquiries.
Alex Watts : Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Alex Watts : Sorry ignore that bit about by laws that is my mistake.
Alex Watts : But once she is released the police will decide through the CPS what action if any to take.
