My son has received a single justice procedure notice.

Customer Question

My son has received a single justice procedure notice.
Assistant: Thank you. Can you provide any more details to help us find you the right Expert?
Customer: He did not pay a train fare in november, got caught, admitted it and gave his correct details. He has just received the notice which says he did not respond to a letter which was sent to him regarding the matter, hence the notice.
Submitted: 12 days ago.
Category: Traffic Law
Expert:  Jo C. replied 12 days ago.

How can I help with this please?

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
I am keen for him not to get a criminal record, is this possible at this stage?
He did not received the previous letter so the single justice notice was the first communication we had. Otherwise we would have paid the fine then.
He has the choice to reply guilty or not guilty. He is guilty and will pay any fine but how do we avoid a criminal record please?
Customer: replied 12 days ago.
Hi, I am not sure my question got through as I received an email saying it was a duplicate.. It's
not, thank you. I am keen to here the response.

Is this for S18 Railway Bye Laws?

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
Expert:  Jo C. replied 12 days ago.

OK. Is this the first time he has done this?

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
Expert:  Jo C. replied 12 days ago.

He can always offer an out of court settlement.

They might not accept it but he can offer. Usually they are looking for roughly £300 or thereabouts.

Even if he has to plead though S18 is not a recordable offence so it will not show on his DBS checks.

Can I clarify anything for you?

Jo

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
It seems from the research I've done that it would show on DBS checks.
Are you sure that it won't as that is good news?
On the FAQ's on the Notice is says if you plead guilty you acquire a criminal conviction.
Would that not go on a DBS?
Expert:  Jo C. replied 12 days ago.

That is wrong. It will not show on DBS. It is not recordable.

Expert:  Jo C. replied 12 days ago.

You do acquire a criminal conviction. But it is not recordable. Like a speeding fine.

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
Ok great thank you
Expert:  Jo C. replied 12 days ago.

No problem and all the best.
