I previously apologized without naming the person, and offered to apologize to him by name upon request.
Today I received a letter making such request, and I will now do so. I hereby apologize to Joseph M. Ahearn, Esq., of the Rensselaer County District Attorney's office.
In a post a few days ago I named him and made some inappropriate remarks about him. After he complained, I reviewed those remarks and realized I had gone too far.
As an attorney, I should handle such problems professionally, and posting a personal attack on this blog was unprofessional of me. I regret doing so.
