Yes, but it is a non recordable offence.

Like a speeding fine.

it won't have any impact upon your character.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 10 months ago.

Breach of railway bye laws are criminal offences but not ones that impact upon character.

No, you won't need a lawyer.

If you are guilty then you should be pleading guilty.

okay let me put it this way, I was reading many threads online about this, now I understand Byelaws acts are mainly for fines and do not progress to record able offense.so when for example TFL wants to prosecute and take someone to court and charge them with a criminal record, which particular transport act do they use? now.
Expert:  Jo C. replied 10 months ago.

As I've said, this does give rise to a criminal record.

It is just not recordable.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Thanks Jo C
