charge of penalty fee .sory
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

That is a problem then I'm afraid.

You can always try to negotiate that the matter is resolved now by means of a fixed penalty fee but I'm afraid that is usually a one off offer.

You can always write to CPS making representations but the chances that would be accepted are fairly low unfortunately.

I'm very sorry but that is position.

Can I clarify anything for you?

ok then so i have go to Court ,If ill just apologize what can I expect in Court what sort of punishment ?
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

If this is just drunk and disorderly then it will only be a fine at court.

It will be higher than the fixed penalty would have been but it will be a fine overall.
