PHOENIX (AP) — 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 October 2009.
Kirby Brown of Westtown, N.Y.; James Shore of Milwaukee; and Liz Neuman of Prior Lake, Minn., died.
