I take full responsibility for my actions. I don't deny or minimize my role in the crimes I had committed. I know what I did and have no reason to hide anything.
I apologize to my victims, my family, and society for the wrongs I've done.
I feel your pain and emotions that come through your words. I'm sorry that you feel that way. You have every right to be angry at that 16-year-old who had committed those crimes.
None of my friends or supporters will ever condone or accept the behavior of that 16-year-old. They love and support me for being who I am, not who I used to be. I'm grateful for that.
If my supporters want to know the details of the crimes I had committed 20 years ago, they can write to me directly.
Just to get the facts straight:
I held the victims captive for over 6 hours.
I did strip naked the female victim, but not at gunpoint.
I did not intend or threaten to rape her.
If you had read what the press wrote about me or checked my file, you would know that.
May peace be with you.
