Brown’s letter of apol­ogy

Townsville Bulletin - - News -

Dear Sir/ Madam,

If I may, I would like to say I am truly and deeply sorry. My ac­tions have caused anger and dis­ap­point­ment as well as hurt to the peo­ple I com­mit­ted these of­fences to, as well as my fam­ily and friends. I know deep down in­side I am a de­cent and kind, lov­ing per­son who has just made the worst mis­take of my life. By plac­ing me in cus­tody, Your Hon­our, has made me take a step back and think this is not the place for me.

I am em­bar­rassed and very ashamed in my­self for what I have done.

Now I know what I have to do to be a part of my com­mu­nity again. I have just re­cently turned 18 and I am ready to . . . be the man I know I can be.

I just ask of you, Your Hon­our, to see the good and po­ten­tial in me which I know is in­side me.

I will do any­thing and ev­ery­thing in my power to make sure I walk down the right path.

Yours sin­cerely, NOR­MAN BROWN.
