Good Morning.

My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise but a guide to assist you.

You have to go to court and plead guilty with an explanation.

You apologise for what happened and also have references to show that this is out of character. Have good references from your university or college that shows you are a hard working student.

The court can dismiss it with no penalty on the basis that is was an oversight and mistake.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If there is nothing further

thank you for using my services.

If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know

If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.
