FR: for having him arrested


Senior Member
I am trying to explain a scene of the movie The Count of Monte Cristo. Villefort offers to take Edmond home to make up for the trouble his arrest has caused him. My attempt:

Villefort dit qu'il emmènera Dantès chez lui pour se faire pardonner d'avoir l'arrêté.

i am not sure on the "for having him arrested" bit, in particular the DOP and its placement, but to be honest I am not sure on the whole phrase.
