In a letter submitted to the court before his sentencing, Mack wrote “to those who have been harmed by my actions.” He said he threw himself into Raniere’s teachings with “everything I had.”
Mack also expressed his regret and apology in his letter. It read: “Right now it is extremely important for me to say from the bottom of my heart: I am very sorry. It was the biggest mistake and regret of my life.”
