  1. So say... This was a moment of very poor judgement on my part and one which I am very embarrassed about.
  2. Thanks DX. So how would you propose I draft this point in my response?
  3. It just says this under details of the offence: The details of the offence are: ...did enter a train for the purpose of travelling on the railway, and upon inspection at LB; did not produce a valid ticket entitling travel.
  4. Thanks for the feedback. Its B. But I'm worried about the intent piece and what it can mean in terms of criminal record.
  5. I apologise profusely for my actions in this case. I pride myself on my integrity and honesty and I feel shameful for my moment of very poor judgement. As the sole income earner for the family (my wife is on maternity leave), a criminal record would be devastating for us as my employment relies upon a clean criminal record. On the 22nd I was travelling to London Bridge and needed to connect at Three Bridges. When purchasing my ticket in the morning I only bought a ticket to Three Bridges by mistake. I made a bad error and I am just so sorry for my actions and the inconvenience caused to all involved. I am happy to make immediate payment of the unpaid fare and any incurred costs that my mistake have caused. I would appreciate your consideration and I sincerely hope that you can show some leniency as an criminal conviction would impact my employment and ultimately being able to provide for my family. Regards I cant offer to get a monthly ir annual as I only travel a handful of times per year.
  6. So change the sentence to: This was an error on my part and one which I am very embarrassed about and take full responsibility for.
  7. A) I bought a ticket to where I got a connecting train but not for the second leg it was a mistake. B) I cant remember exactly as it was quite scary and happened so fast, but I said I made a mistake and bought thr wrong ticket
  8. How about this as a response: Dear Fare Evasion Manager, With regard to your letter dated 18 November, I would like to sincerely apologies for purchasing the incorrect ticket for my journey. This was an oversight on my part and one which I am very embarrassed about. I can assure you this will not happen again and I would like to offer to pay the difference in fair as well as the administrative costs incurred by GTR. I apologies again for the inconvenience caused. Regards Should I go in to more detail if this is tok short and missing the point ? Thanks
  9. Thanks. I have but am still worried. What is the likelihood of this going to court do you think? And getting a criminal record
  10. Hi all, After a worrying 3 months I have just received a 'Notice of intention to prosecute ' letter and need to reply within 14 days. It also references their intention to take this to the Magistrates Court. The details of the offence are: ...did enter a train for the purpose of travelling on the railway, and upon inspection at LB; did not produce a valid ticket entitling travel. Can you advise on a suitable response to GTR. I am really worried, it talks about criminal record and prison sentence etc. Thanks SB
  11. Thanks HB, much appreciated. Although not prison is a criminal record likely or is it typically a fine? Yes, first offence. Does the process take long, just wondering I long I can expect this to hang over me.
  12. Hi, As my name suggests, I have been a really silly person. I was on a Thameslink train and only bought a ticket for part of my journey. The Revenue Officer talked to me, obtained my details and I signed a form stating that I didn't have the right ticket for the journey. I am so so worried about being prosecuted and am deeply embarrassed. In fact worried isn't the word, petrified is a better word I have no idea what happens next or what the likely outcome is fine, prison etc? I would be delighted if someone could give me an idea as to what I am in for in respect if a likely outcome and process. Talk about being an idiot and learning the hard way. Lesson has been learnt today, I promise. Thanks SB
