I reused my carnet and was caught. It was an utterly wrong thing to do and I completely hold my hands up that what I did was fraudulent and a crime. I am not trying to make excuses. I don't know what I was thinking, and the more I dwell on it the more mortified I feel. It didn't feel like a crime or theft when I did it, I don't know why, but now I do realise how grave it was. I have never done anything like this before and have used the railway lawfully for years. It took place on a St Albans to London journey. I have not yet received any letter from Govia but I am sure it is coming. I would like to prepare myself as best possible, recognising the need to both pay for my crime and recompense Govia, but also seeing if an out of court settlement is possible. I've read through the various threads on similar issues and found them really helpful. What I am hoping you might be able to advise on is how likely Govia are to settle out of court or whether I should prepare for an inevitable prosecution. Many thanks.
