  2. Thank you! I wrote 2,5 pages in my appology letter - is it far too long? I've been working on it since yesterday and I just have no idea how to reduce it For now I feel to ashamed to ask a friend for help to proofread it so I am asking here. Can anyone please help?

  5. At one point I did try to do it but it was so confusing that I just gave up and planned to do it later but later never came. this troubles me as it shows you knew something was amiss , it they have a record of this it might make things difficult. --- Unfortunately this is the problem I am experiencing with my mental health, depression and anxiety. You know you need to do something, even something very simple like brushing your teeth, and when you are about to do it, you get a feeling that it is so overwhelming, so huge and impossible to achiveve that you just give up, don't do it, start crying and don't get out of bed for a week or 2 until someone notices your abscence and comes to help you... Have you got anyone with such problems? THere are many forum on this topic and the only consolation to me is that I am not the only one in this situation.... If this 'make things difficult' I will need to ask my therapist to attend the court and explain what depression is all about...and it is not easy.
  6. No I didn't load my card. As I explained earlier I thought I was travelling on my credit card as usual. With the new job I didn't have time to check all the fares, daily, weekly, monthly, yearly, substract holidays, working from home and calculate what was the best option for me. At one point I did try to do it but it was so confusing that I just gave up and planned to do it later but later never came. But the officer did not take the details of my credit card, he took the details of my expired student oyster card with some top up credit on it. Does it answer your question? how should I proceed now? I'm really desperate and so frightened. If I get a criminal record I will lose my job, I will have another breakdown, I won't be able to find a new job and I have no idea how I will get on with my life. I am so angry as I have always lived honestly and I have never done anything illegal or similar. In all my life I have always been a law abiding citizen paying my taxes and bills always on time, and living in accordance with all the rules and regulations. And now out of the blue I am in huge trouble and I really have no idea why it happened
  7. Not sure why 2 separate threads were merged and are now repetitive and confusing...
  8. going to work but they stopped me after entering the station so I didn't have a chance to make the jouney.
  9. Thank you for your reply. Yes, my letter is very humble, contrite, open and honest. I am begging for mercy and I’m offering to pay any fees and penalties they think I deserve and/or do any social/charity work that might help me not get a prosecution and a criminal record. I was actually planning to write the 'caution' at the very end as a ps. just in case it changed anything. Are you saying I should not even mention it? Even if it was done wrongly? And I presume it was but I don't know the law that’s why I’m asking…
  10. When I was caught using my mom's freedom pass, 'the caution' was read to me AFTER I answered all the questions and was asked to sign the notes. I was NOT asked to review the notes just to sign. Is it how it is supposed to be done? After the questions and my signature the caution followed and I just felt sick. The officer offered free legal advice but I refused because I was mentally and physically unable to continue. Can I still request free legal advice should I go to court? I think I wasnÂ’t informed that I DID NOT have to answer the questions WITHOUT legal adviser. My mind is pretty fuzzy on the above but this is what I remember. In hindsight I would have answered everything with a free lawyer but to be honest I think I answered everything truthfully anyway... but: Was the caution read to me legally in this order? Should I mention it in my apology letter? With a case number saying to fill in the form on the reverse of the letter with plead guilty or not guilty within 10 days – no intention to prosecute yet. I intend to plead guilty because I did commit this offence. If I accept committing the offence I need to provide any exceptional reasons as to why they should not prosecute me. They stopped me just after I crossed the tube gates at Northolt station so I didn't have a chance to actually make any journey. After all the questioning they let me out and I went back in using my credit card. I only have 4 days to reply as I only received it today (I was checking the post ever since the incident – it took them only 4 days to write it to me – is it a bad sign?) so I only have a week to reply L. So please can you help me understand: What the legal consequences will be? I am talking about worst case scenario. I am pretty sure I will be prosecuted, will be given a criminal record, huge fine (how much do you think?) but will not be jailed as this is my first offence? Or am I wrong and can get to prison? Will my employer need to know? Will I get fired? If this happens can I appeal and how? [*]My exceptional reasons (I guess these are the mitigating circumstances) is my mental illness. I have suffered from depression, anxiety, associated disorders and side effects caused by being on antidepressants for about 10 years – all is GP documented. As a result I have suffered from frequent serious disorders – just imagine the worst for a depressed person as I donÂ’t feel like providing such details. In addition I recently started a therapy to stop smoking and the side effects of the medicine are severe and are not helping my mental state. Especially the last 2 years have been very hard for me, I lost my job, my person life crumbled, I had difficulty getting out of bed and so onÂ… and finally 3 weeks ago I found a job (which again added a lot of stress as I want to keep it at all costs) and I was caught only after 2 weeks of working. [*]I was asked if it was my first time: I honestly donÂ’t know and this is what I answered. My mom and I keep exchanging bags and stuff and I have been too stressed out to check which card I had in my bag – they have the same cases. So the worst case scenario is that I have been using it since January/February this year but irregularly like 1-3 times a week or weeks of not using it at all. [*]‘the cautionÂ’ Was read to me after I answered all the questions and was asked to sign the notes. I was not asked to review the notes just to sign. Later came the caution and I just felt sick. He offered free legal advice but I refused because I was mentally and physically unable to continue. I think I wasnÂ’t informed that I didnÂ’t have to answer the questions without legal adviser. My mind is pretty fuzzy on the above but this is what I remember. In hindsight I would have answered everything with a free lawyer but to be honest I think I answered everything truthfully anyway but: Was the caution read to me legally in this order? I.e. after I answered all the questions and was asked to sign the notes without reviewing them? ​ [*]Apology letter I intend to write everything that happened, the card/bag mix up, my mental issues, plead guilty, apologise, ask not to be prosecuted, not to get a criminal record, settle out of court, offer the payment of all the associated fees and penalty etc. Does it sound right? Should I add something about the caution that to me should have been read at the beginning? Should I add anything else to help my case? ​ Thank you very much for reading this! As you can imagine I am losing my mind, I am scared, terrified I overmedicate so that I donÂ’t have to thinkÂ… any words of wisdom will help so please, I am begging you help me if you can.
