To the public of Shamokin: I recently committed some criminal acts in Shamokin and apologize to all those affected by my actions.

My actions were not maliciously planned or intended. They were the effects from smoking spice. Don't ever let anyone tell you that spice is OK; it's far from it. It's dangerous and unhealthy, and can only lead to trouble.

I hope my present situation will be an example to others before they end up in a situation of their own.

My actions have not affected only myself, but also loved ones and others close to me. I've lost trust and respect from others as a result. I hope in time that those affected by my actions can find it in themselves to forgive me.

To all those affected, I deeply apologize.

Kevin Kish
