WILKES-BARRE, Pa., Jan. 13 (UPI) -- A Pennsylvania student charged with urinating on a public nativity scene has apologized for his actions and vowed to stop drinking.

Nathan Strawn, 22, a student at King's College, released an open letter apologizing for drunkenly urinating on the Wilkes-Barre Public Square nativity scene at about 1:54 a.m. Sunday, The Citizens' Voice, Wilkes-Barre, reported Wednesday.

Strawn was spotted by a police officer and charged with indecent exposure, desecration of venerated objects, open lewdness, public drunkenness and disorderly conduct.

"As a self-proclaimed Christian, I have unsuitably represented them by doing this humiliating action. I apologize to everyone for what I have done," he wrote in the letter.

Strawn said he plans to plead guilty to the charges at a Jan. 20 preliminary hearing.

King's College officials said the student, who has eight credits to go for a journalism degree, could face punishments ranging from a warning to expulsion at the conclusion of the court case and a school investigation.

The student said he plans to quit drinking regardless of the outcome of the case.
