Prugo Apologizes and Begins Media Tour
While the others were off hiding or denying their involvement whenever they could, Prugo began his remorse-filled media tour.
"I started by giving the stuff back, everything I had in my possession, helping the police with their investigation. It's been difficult. I'm just trying to do what I can."
He went on to apologize to the celebrities he stole from, and said of the media depicting him as a rat. "They're going to say what they're going to say. If me taking responsibility for my crimes and trying to help out the police makes me a rat, then so be it. I'm just trying to make amends and do right."
Oddly, Prugo still maintains his legal innocence. Like the others, he pleaded not guilty. He nonetheless told Vanity Fair: "I'm just really trying to make whatever amends I can, especially to these celebrities that I victimized," he said. "I really want them to know that I'm sorry. I'm not really sure how I'm going to do that yet. But I really plan on making some formal apology to them. I don't know how they'll react. I mean, to have someone in your house, where it's your most personal of sanctuaries."
