I overslept and was late for work by 2 hours

Like I could have got in earlier but I wasn't getting stressed about it. Had my shower and walked in. Theres a thing - no buses early on a Sunday. They should cop on and put them on in this day and age. Like people do work Sundays! Not everyone has a mon-friday 9-5 job.

You Write a letter which you say and admit is an error of judgement but you don't withdraw it and it's read in court so you could have taken it back ?
Why didn't you?
You had time.
Is it a case of say one thing and do another?

I don't know what the fuck is wrong with me, over the last few weeks I have managed to lose a brand new iPhone charging cable, a couple of t-shirts, my sunglasses and the power cord to my iMac!

A character reference for court purpose would more than likely be in the form of some sworn affidavit.
It reflect what you swore to at the time: it cannot just be withdrawn, if it has already been filed with the case.
All you could do is lodge another affidavit, but you cannot suggest the previous reference was a lie or a mistake, as it could constitute perjury.

The really annoying thing is not that he wrote it, and that after the fact (too late to "retract" it) he regrette it. The unacceptable thing is that such statements are admitted in the first place! That being a "GAA man", a good neighbor and a cool friend, can be seen as a mitigating factor in sexual abuse!

Bullshit
Of course a character reference can be withdrawn especially if the facts of a case are unknown and most importantly before sentencing.

Perjury pertains to giving evidence in a case and possibly after a character reference is read by the judge but before that point there is no reason they couldn't be withdrawn because they didn't before that point exist in the case.
