Apology issued for break-ins

Hello, my name is Chaunce Hoxie and last year for two months I was running around town breaking into people's houses, stealing their belongings and terrorizing the neighborhood. I am writing this to tell the people that I did this to that I am sorry.

I know saying this won't change what I did or fix the damage I caused. But I have to start fixing what I did somewhere. I have been in Wildwood Correctional Center for 12 months and I have had a lot of time to reflect on what I did and how everyone must have felt. Losing your belongings that you worked hard to get and keep, who am I to take your things?

No one should have to worry in the safety of his or her own home. I will be returning to Anchor Point this month to start a new life and not make the same mistakes, to turn a new page in my life and look to the future. I ask for forgiveness from all of you for what I did and hope we can build a new trust between us.

And I am sorry.

Chaunce Hoxie
