Two questions, really. I am inclined to plead not guilty as it was a mistake, however, I have been told that this is pointless as in the eyes of the law I am guilty. What is your advice? Also, is there a legal practice in Bromley, Kent which would take on a case like this? Also, if I do plead guilty, will I automatically acquire a criminal record and what are the consequences of this?
You say it is not recordable, what does that mean? For instance, if I were to apply for a Visa for the United States, would this prohibit me from doing so? Any other implications?
Thank you for your help. I think I plead guilt and write a mitigation circumstances letter with the plea. Any advice what I should definitely put into the mitigation letter (i.e., it was a mistake, I have no previous record, etc.). Any advice would be appreciated.
Yes, I am. I have tried calling them, but the number was engaged. They made an application for £125 contribution towards the costs of Transport for London and a further application for compensation of £4.80 in respect of the fare avoided. I thought I may offer them £250? (double what they asked for) Do you think that may be sufficient? Your advice is appreciated.
Thank you. If they do not reply, can I make that offer by email to them?
Thank you, ***** ***** trying.
