Remorse means you a trying to say sorry for something you know you did that was not right. Begin by describing exactly what you did. Then say that you know you hurt that person. Then say that it hurts you to have done it. End by asking for forgiveness, preferably meeting with the person at some time if you can. Above all don't beat yourself up and be sincere. We all screw up. Few of us are honourable enough to admit it.

You don't want to sugar coat it but you want to be direct.  Get to the point and explain your actions.  You may have the best explanation in the world but just remember that doesnt pardon you from the consequences. Show remorse without sounding desperate and just hope that they will take your letter seriously and use it in your favor.

Just start writing and then reread what you've written. If you're unsure ask a friend to read it and give you feed back. Be sincere and to the point. It also really depends on how much you like to write and how well you know the people involved.

Grab a pen and some paper and go for it. You can do it. When people are grieving they are so grateful to have any kind of support that they will not be critiquing your letter. That letter will be such a blessing to them. You can do it.

Dear Judge ______,

I am writing to you this letter to express my deepest and heartfelt regrets of the final outcome of the trial. Though I believe initially I had good intentions, but some where along the line I let my emotions get the best of me and caused members of my family much hurt. For that I do apologize.

I do believe that somewhere alone the line a great misunderstanding took place of which I could have corrected.

For this I except the authority of the courts and its decisions that it is making today.

Forever and eternally remorseful,

G'day Guest,

Thank you for your question.

I would write a letter clearly indicating that I was guilty and showing my remorse both to the victim and the judge. I would also try and get some character references showing that the crime was not normally part of my behaviour.

All you have to do is, just put yourself in the other person shoe. If the person had committed an offence against you, how would feel?.

You can start by saying sorry for what you put that person through and that it will never happen again.The reason why you committed the offence.Offer your service to them and ask them how you can make amends for offending them the way you did.

You should also apologise to the court and every one
