Woman sends Zeta-Jones letter to apologize for threats
www.chinaview.cn 2004-06-30 09:13:32

  ĦĦLOS ANGELES, June 29 (Xinhuanet) -- A woman charged with making criminal threats against Hollywood actress Catherine Zeta-Jones sent the actress a letter apologizing for "any distress" caused and asking for forgiveness, a defense lawyer said Tuesday.

    In an undated missive to Zeta-Jones and the actress' father-in-law, Kirk Douglas, Dawnette Knight described herself as a "confused young woman infatuated with (Zeta-Jones' husband) Michael Douglas."

    "I want to apologize for any distress I have caused you and your families," the 22-year-old wrote in the one-page letter. The letter was released by Knight's attorney Richard Herman.

    "It would be a wonderful good deed if you would all forgive me so that I can go back to college to finish my studies in child psychology," Knight wrote.

    Herman said his client is a young woman who got "confused and thought she was doing something as a prank, and it got taken much too seriously because that's the age we live in."

    Knight remains jailed in lieu of 1-million-dollar bail pending a July 26 hearing in Los Angeles Superior Court to determine if there is enough evidence to require her to stand trial on more than two dozen charges, including making criminal threats and stalking.

    Herman expected the case to be resolved, adding that he hoped Knight could "receive counseling that she needs and that we put all this behind us." Enditem
