St. Louis MetroLink Ticket Violations at Wellston - Only $40
Did you recently receive a ticket for “fare evasion” while riding the MetroLink in St Louis? Or did you use an expired pass? Or were you caught drinking and/or eating on the train?
Over the last several years, the city and county of St Louis have been cracking down on these types of violation. And as a result, many people have been issued citations. But a MetroLink violation is not like your typical traffic ticket.Pleading Guilty Is Not Your Best Option
It’s actually a misdemeanor!! No kidding! A misdemeanor. So if you plead guilty to it (which can be done by simply paying the fine suggested by the city), then it will go on your permanent record.
Why is this a bad outcome? Because once a criminal conviction is on your record, it will stay there forever. And anyone running a simple background check on you will see it. This, obviously, will have a detrimental impact on whether or not you get a decent job in the future!
But if you’d rather avoid such an outcome, then give us a call! Our goal would be to get the violation dismissed altogether (or at the very least get the ticket reduced to a lesser infraction, so that nothing bad shows up on your record).
The St Louis MetroLink lawyers at The Law Office of Jennifer Alter-Rieken, have been helping people with their city and county ticket citations for many years.
