Two car-hoppers regret their actions

Dear editor,

I am writing this letter because my friend and I were arrested for car-hopping.

Dear editor,

I am writing this letter because my friend and I were arrested for car-hopping.

At the time we weren’t thinking straight and were making bad choices.

After we got caught, we went through the community justice program —  because of this we got to meet the lady whose car we went into.  I felt bad for all the trouble I had caused her.

I feel lucky to have had the chance to go through the community justice program instead of getting charged and am now working on doing my community hours.

I realize I made a big mistake and will not do it again!

I want to take this opportunity to apologize to everyone my actions affected.

• • •

I am sorry, community of Comox Valley, for my actions.

Because of my actions, people where hurt emotionally.

I wasn’t thinking of anyone else but myself. I thought this wouldn’t upset anyone, but I was wrong.

Looking back, I regret my actions that day and wish I could change them. I deserve the punishment I have received, and will carry it out willingly. I have changed my group of friends, and have begun thinking before I act so something like this never happens again.

Once again, I am sorry, Comox Valley, and I hope that you forgive me.

These letters were written as a condition of a settlement reached with the help of the Comox Valley community Justice Centre. The letters arise from the same incident.
