Brown’s letter of apology
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.
