Placed in parole review on 07/07/09


Dear Angela McCown, Director of Victim Services Division

I am writing on behalf of the families of the four young girls that Ricky Carter murdered when he chose to drive under the influence of alcohol.  A jury of his peers found him guilty and sentenced him to 20 years in prison.  I believe he should serve the full sentence and that to parole him after eight years says that each girl’s life was only worth two years of punishment to him.  Please do the right thing and keep Mr. Carter behind bars for his full sentence so that he will not be able to kill anyone else.  Thank you for considering this request.
