There are no excuses. No one owes me forgiveness, but I've learned a lot from the experience. I hope that the people who might look up to me will be able to learn from my mistakes and not repeat them".

Charles originally claimed he had his high school prom photographs retaken with a ring light, however the conversation revealed that he had actually edited the photographs and contacted the photographer.
