Hi, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is*****’m a barrister with 12 years of experience and I am happy to help with your question today.
can you give me the background details and what happened last time please
Ok. So what is your question about this?
The short answer is that there is no failsafe way to stop this going to court. You accept travel without a valid ticket and so have committed an offence. They are entitled to prosecute it.
You could ask them to give you the internal fine or to settle out of court. Sometimes they will agree to that. You cannot demand it though and usually they are in the region of £200-£300. But it is an offer you can make and it might work.
Can I clarify anything for you?
No problem and all the best.

No. It is a massive aggravating feature.
Not on that basis .
They may settle out of court but it is really not a good idea to tell them you work in an industry that demands integrity. That racks up the wish to prosecute you by ten.
