Dear Mr. Sanders,

I deeply apologize for the incident of cheating involving myself last Monday. It was a spur of the moment thing and I know that what I did was really wrong.

I know that you may be feeling disappointed in me and my group, but I ask you for one more chance to set things right.

I hope that you can forgive me and I look forward to showing you that you can trust me again.

Sincerely Yours,
Faith Adams
