Hi all, Need some advice I wont go in the full detail but briefly I was caught using my husband’s seasons ticket by a Northern Rail employee. I have now received a letter to give my side of the story. I went through Railway Regulation and it clearly falls under Regulation of Railways Act 1889, 5 (3), intent to avoid payment I am now very stressed as having a criminal record will have a huge impact on my career. Cant believe how I did that, it wasn’t intentional, I was just very stupid and ignorant, but its impossible to prove that now. I have decided to state full facts in my reply to them, showing my remorse with assurance that thus wont happen in future and an offer to pay their administrative costs and my due fare and any fine. If I manage to get an out of court settlement, will I still get a criminal record as it was breach of Regulation of Railways Act 1889, 5 (3), intent to avoid payment?? Any help/advice/guidance/reassurance will be greatly appreciated!
