"I caused a lot of trouble and regret it," he said.

Yep. that should be enough. Oh maybe a deep bow or too. No going to jail. No 8 hour interrogations with a shower every 5 days. No confinement to a cell where you are not allowed to turn off the light to sleep. Just express regret and bow. Ah...for the life of a Japanese politician...
