Hi, Not sure where to start it’s been nearly a year and my life has been ruined by my stupid actions. I’m not sure what is going to happen to me and I would really appreciate any advice anyone could give me please. My specific question is around a criminal conviction and the corresponding sentences. I have been summoned to court Contray to Byelaw 17(1) of the Transport for London Railway Byelaws. If I receive a conditional/absolute discharge: 1. Will this come up on any DBS checks? 2. Could I go to the US for holiday/study purposes under their visa waiver programme? 3. Will it come up if I'm applying for jobs that are sensitive in nature? I did something very very stupid and very very wrong. I have never broken any laws before and I never intend to do again. I’m just so shocked that all my opportunities in life are going to be taken away from me. Is there a way to avoid prosecution or any marks on your record please?
