"I hope they will see that I'm going to try to do my best with what I've got. I've lived a life of service to my community, people and God, and I let them all down. I'm very ashamed," Kraig Mitchell, 33, told Judge Donna Howard before being sentenced by her.
"It's a sad day for you and for your family," the judge told Mitchell. "Sometimes we take things for granted and I think that's what you did. You were on a good path. Now you'll be on a different path because of your mistake. You walked around every day and enforced the law. You knew the law. You knew all those things."
