"Well, I think that he's trying to do the right thing here, and make sure that, you know, I'm gonna do the plea bargain thing and make sure that I don't get into this situation, ever again. As long as you make a mistake and learn from it, I hope people give him a lot of lattitude, because people make mistakes, and as long as he's trying to take those positive steps and do the right thing, I think we should all respect that and support him."
