One of the five defendants in the 2007 shooting death of Miami Hurricanes and Washington Redskins star Sean Taylor has penned an apology letter through The Washington Times.
Venjah Hunte, who pleaded guilty in 2008 to second-degree murder and burglary while armed is serving a 29-year sentence at Metro West Dentention Center in Miami.
In his letter to The Washington Times, Hunte wrote:
To begin I would like to send my deepest apology to the family of Sean Taylor. I know an apology wont bring him back, but I hope one day they could find it in their hearts to forgive me.
Taylor died after being shot in the leg -- the bullet hit his femoral artery -- during a botched robbery attempt in his Palmetto Bay, Fla. home on the morning of Nov. 26, 2007.
The four other defendants in the case -- Timmy Lee Brown, Jason Scott Mitchell, Eric Rivera, Charles Wardlow -- have yet to be tried and are currently jailed without bond. The latest trial attempt is scheduled for April 15, 2013 and Hunte, the reported getaway driver, will testify against them as part of his plea agreement.
My thought or intentions werent to hurt him or noone sic else, let alone murder, it was something I thought would never happen, Hunte wrote in his letter to the Times. Even though I didnt pull the trigger I still have to take responsibility for my actions. Period.
"Back then, I was just existing, I wasnt living life at all. I was just living the fast life, chasing fast money, doing things my way which would be the wrong way in the end. In the last five years, Ive had to grow up and mature a lot. I no longer think about or want to indulge in the things I used to, its just not worth it to me anymore.
