Radha Das 123 Example Street Parramatta NSW 2150
1 February 2015 Lismore Local Court PO BOX 18 Lismore NSW 2480
Re: Request for change of court Radha Das - Travelling without a ticket H765452
I am due to appear at Lismore Local 10 February 2015 for the offence of travelling without a ticket. I intend to plead guilty to this offence.
I wish to appear at court in person but live in Parramatta. It would be very expensive and difficult for me to attend Lismore for my court date. I have estimated that it would cost me approximately $150 by train. I am currently a full time student and the only income I receive is from a Youth Allowance. I would also be required to miss numerous days off from study to go to Lismore.
I ask the court to move my case to a court nearer to where I live, such as Parramatta Local Court to allow me to appear in person. I can attend court on any day except 14 February 2015.
I may be contacted on my mobile on 0412 955 587, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or at the above address.
