Please help. I know this is the most stupidest thing anyone can do and I'm not making any excuses for it, however need some advice.
I offered my monthly travel pass to my husband as he was running late and I did not want him to miss his train, he took it without hesitation.
This morning he was caught using my monthly travel pass on the c2c with his own photocard. The inspector took both his photocard and the pass itself and said that he would be getting a letter about being fined and prosecuted for using someone else's pass.
We are both terribly concerned that he may get a criminal record, we will take on any penalty that comes our way as we know that this was a big mistake to do and the transport people take this offence very seriously. Can someone please advise on how he can avoid getting a criminal record as he doesn't want to have to lose his job and face embarrasement.
Please do not critiscise, we both know that this was a big mistake and regret it terribly. Any advice given is much appreciated.
