St. Louis MetroLink Ticket Violations at University City - Big Bend - Only $40
The biggest mistake people make when they receive a citation for fare evasion (i.e. not paying for a MetroLink ticket to ride the train) is to think of it as something akin to a common traffic ticket.
But nothing could be further from the truth!! Because the city and county of St Louis are cracking down on fare evasion activity, it has been upped to the level of a misdemeanor.Pleading Guilty Is Not Your Best Option
One option, of course, would be to plead guilty to the charge. But that decision will have long lasting implications for your future! For example, a guilty plea will allow the state to put the charge onto your permanent record. This record is accessed by anyone wishing to do a simple background check on you. Who might run a criminal background check? Potential employers, landlords, and government agencies (whose purpose is to dole out benefits to certain qualifying recipients).
If you’d rather avoid this type of outcome, then you should definitely give us a call!! Our goal with this type of violation is simple: we want to get the ticket dismissed altogether. So get in touch with us right away, and we’ll work hard to ensure that your record stays clean!
