Hi

 

I have been caught evading my fare on the trains several times over the course of the past month. I am certain the train company will start legal proceedings against me with a criminal prosecution.

 

I was wondering what I could go to convince them to give me an out of court settlement. 100% my fault but a conviction would mean the end of my career and I will become unemployable.

 

Does anyone know any good solicitors that might be able to help me?

 

* title should read 'criminal prosecution'

Have you been caught the once?

Caught once with evidence of multiple evasions?

Caught once with evidence of one evasion, interviewed under caution and admitted multiple evasions?

Caught more than once?.

 

Having a criminal conviction might make you unemployable in your current position, or even current field / role : that may also depend on what the prosecute you for IF they prosecute (does your job require an eDBS?).

 

A conviction for fare evasion may make you less likely to be employed in other roles, but it doesn't make someone completely "unemployable'

You may not need a lawyer for this. I'm afraid we don't recommend lawyers anyway, it's against site rules.

 

Adding to what BazzaS has said, you need to wait for them to write to you and then is your chance to ask if they will let you settle out of court. Once you receive the letter, we'll help you to draft something.

 

Who is the train operating company [TOC] please?
