Fare Evasion summons - Please HELP!!
I'm new to the forum and hope to get some advice from you more experienced lot.
So to make the story short, I stupidly used my wife's +18 Student Oyster card and got caught on the tube. Tried to settle before summons, but today received the summons letter in the post. I'm being prosecuted for fare evasion.
Does anyone know how this might potentially affect my CCTV SIA licence renewal and my job? Otherwise I have a clean record and I heard these kind of offences are so-called non recordable. Is that true and if so, would they show on the CRB? I tried to check on the SIA Criminal record indicator, but I couldn't find this offence anywhere.
I'm really scared for losing my job, because I'm up for promotion and my wife's pregnant.
Any advice is much appreciated, thanks in advance!
