Dear Angela McCown, Director of Victim Services Division:

 On December 19, 1998, Ricky Carter destroyed the future of four young women and the hopes and dreams of their families.  I am the Aunt of Lacey Osina and have felt and seen the pain that Mr. Carterís decision to drink and drive caused my family

 I do not think it is justified  to base the value of my nieceís life on how many years Mr. Carter is in prison. No amount of time spent will ever heal or bring my niece back to her family. I truly feel that no amount of discomfort or pain that Mr. Carter has felt in prison can make-up for his taking the lives of four young women.

 My niece, Lacy, and her three friends are gone due to Mr. Carterís decision to drink and drive that night and it is only right that he pay the piper for his deed. He should not be paroled and should have to finish out his sentence.  Twenty years in prison is a fair punishment when compared to the sentence he gave my niece and her friends. 

Respectfully,

 

Patricia Anzelmo
