Hi, this is not not for TFL anymore as received and email from TFL:
London Underground has already reviewed your case and taken everything into account upon reaching a decision to prosecute you.
I would advise you to carefully consult the summons paperwork that you have received and enter your plea to the court prior the hearing date.
So that mean I've to write a statement of what happened on that day and my circumstances to the court now is it right?
I've to write a statement and send to you, will you help me on correction? or see if is a correct way for the court to see.
I just completed the letter and if you can help me by correcting or change around to make it better, because I want to make sure it right for the court t see and understand my side of story.. And thanks for this!
Here it is..
I’m sincerely apology for asking you to look into this for case for me. I accepted is my fault that on Monday 11/03/2013 I did not have a permission travel into zone 1 as I did not touch with my Oyster Pay as you go card to extend my journey into zone 1.
On that journey I had with me are a valid travel card ticket zone 23456 and an Oyster card with £17.71 credit at that time. I was travelling from North Greenwich to Uxbridge. Got the Jubilee line from North Greenwich to Finchley Road and Metropolitan line to Uxbridge, as the two train arrived in the same platform as I was so hurry to catch the metropolitan train that just pulled in next to Jubilee train, my judgement was wrong as I should have touch my Oyster card Pay as you go before carry on my journey but I didn’t and forgot that I’ve an Oyster card.
Reason for all this as I got a lift 2 or 3 times a week from my previous neighbour as he works in Enfield at and he drop me at Kilburn or West Hampstead station on his way to work, from here I catch a Jubilee train to Finchley Road to get as fast train from Metropolitan train to Uxbridge. I always buy extend a day return ticket at £4.20 for zone 1 or weekly £30.40 zone 1 & 2 pass to cover the journey and depend if I don’t get lift from my neighbour. And I’m trying to save some money if the journey is not used. I do used Oyster cards but was mislaid and could not find it until now that why I start buying ticket at the station and my Oyster card had been using accordingly from the past.
I was caught and was wrong for lying at first when the inspector was asking a question but was fully cooperated when was asking again and answered true fully as I know I was wrong, and I would have paid the penalty fare if I have a second chance on that day. The inspector was just straight to the point write down the statement and asking me to read and signed it, but I didn’t read it as I know it was my fault and was so scared that I may end up in the police cell if not cooperate and just signed the statement without reading it. It was never my intention to do it and I realise that I was foolish and stupid of me and I am extremely sorry. The next day after my head thinking straight and went out looking for the 3 inspectors that caught me (2 males and a female) and found them on 13th March 2013 at Finchley Road station and apologies to the inspector (Ms Julie Barron) and her team for what I did (you can ask Ms Barron and her team that I did looking for her on that day) and we did have a conversation. The 3 inspectors are very helpful to me but I know is too late as I wanted do the right thing to say sorry, didn’t mean much but want to respect the law also show my new valid travel card zone 123456 to the inspectors.
This incident has me extremely worry and mentally stress and I would like to ask you to forgiveness and leniency on my case, worrying now if I don’t have a job for next day if the company find out that I’ve been convicted with criminal record as they are very strict with policy. I’m so ashamed of myself for keeping this secret to my friends and family, specially to my long time fiancée as I don’t want to her to know that will ruin career and our relationship for over 8 years together as we’re planning to get married this summer/autumn or early in next year, worry and fear the plans is going to break down if I get a criminal record. All my saving is for my marriage and mortgage lender for first time buyer is depends on me keeping the job and with a clean record. I’ve been made redundant twice and don’t want this happen to me again as I know how stressful it was and specially now is very difficult to find a job with my age at 45. I don’t earn much and still living with my parents and look after them as they’re old coupe and not in good health, specially to my mother as she just come out from hospital recovering from heart attack, and don’t want her to know.
This is my first offence and till date and have a clean track record all my life. The stress I have went through has taught me and will be remembered the rest of my life and promise never to commit any offence in future. I’m begging you and kindly taking this into consideration and give a second chance to be a much better person.
Please don’t put me in prison or register me with criminal record as I’ll lose everything I working and dreaming for. I plead guilty to my offence and whatever the fines you going to give me I accept and ready to pay all fines, costs and charged for my offence or I’ll do anything to make me a good or a better citizen today, please give me a second chance.
