PHOENIX — A self-help author convicted in the deaths of three people
following a 2009 sweat lodge ceremony in northern Arizona says he’s still
anguished about what happened.
James Arthur Ray appeared on CNN in a live interview Monday night.
Ray was convicted on three counts of negligent homicide and served 20 months in
an Arizona prison.
He also was required to spend time in Arizona on community supervision. That
ended on Oct. 12.
Ray told CNN that he’s “very sorry and remorseful about what happened” and
wishes he could change it.
He says “the anguish has continued every single day.”
Dozens of people participated in Ray’s sweat lodge ceremony near Sedona in
Kirby Brown of Westtown, N.Y.; James Shore of Milwaukee; and Liz Neuman of
Prior Lake, Minn., died.
