“I apologize and accept full responsibility for my actions, and will be pleading guilty to the charge. I regret putting myself and the public at risk and have taken immediate steps to put my life and health back on track including going back into treatment with a new counselor. I am grateful to my family and friends who have supported me as I have dealt with the challenges of my addiction.
