Delmon Young accepts responsibility for actions in statement


Here is a statement released by his attorney, Daniel J. Ollen:

"Delmon accepted responsibility today for his actions. He is sorry for what he did and is committed to living a law abiding life.
"He must complete 10 days of community service and a one-day program at the Museum of Tolerance in New York City. In six months' time, the charges against Delmon will be vacated and he will plead guilty to a the violation of harassment, which under New York law is not a crime."

Young had already accepted responsibility for the incident upon returning to the Tigers in early May, after serving an MLB-imposed suspension.

In a similar statement, issued later through Ollen, by way of Young's agents:

“Delmon clearly regrets what happened and took the necessary steps to put this issue behind him today. He has learned from this experience and will continue to do everything he can to improve himself as a person and player. He has agreed to complete 10 days of community service and a one day program at the Museum of Tolerance in New York City as part of this process and, in six months’ time, the charges against Delmon will be vacated and reduced to a simple violation of harassment, which is not a crime under New York Law.”
