Apologizing is a way of accepting your mistake and trying to show that you feel bad about it. However, saying “sorry” doesn’t right a wrong and it definitely does not save a person from facing the legal consequences of his actions.
In the case of California Senator Roy Ashburn, his apology for a DUI arrest may be applauded by some people because of his courage to admit his mistake.
But, because of his position, others may still continue to criticize his actions especially after it was reported that the anti-gay lawmaker stayed at a gay nightclub before his arrest.
According to reports, the senator was pulled over by the authorities after his state-issued Chevy Tahoe was allegedly seen veering along L and 13th Streets.
He was brought to Sacramento County Jail where he was booked but was then released on a $1,400 bond.
Meanwhile, his male passenger was spared from arrest, said reports.
Charges of driving under the influence and driving with a blood alcohol level higher than .08% or higher were filed against Ashburn.
