This is way too long. Just summarize the offense. Mention what you did to make up for it, say nothing has happened since, done.

All you need is something like this:

During my freshman year, I was cited for having an empty bottle of liquor in my dorm room. The bottle was my roommates, and I was unaware of the policy against empty liquor bottles. I took an online educational course about the effects of alcohol to remedy the incident. I take full responsibilty for violating the policy.

Yep. It's not Part II of your personal statement. Short and sweet. State the instance in a matter of fact tone. Acknowledge it was an error in judgment. State your punishment and that (if) you completed it and made your restitution. Move on.

A lot of people have made mistakes. You need not be overly apologetic; you need to acknowledge (disclose) and make briefly clear that you learned and righted the wrong.
