Texas parole Board of Pardons and Reviews
Offender: Ricky Carter
in parole review on 6/5/2012
Dear Angela McCown, Director of victim
Iím writing to you after reading the
story of the 4 girls who were killed by the drunk driver,
Ricky Carter in December 1998.
am in opposition to an early release for Carter and feel
that he should serve his sentence of 20 years in full.
We must never forget these smart and
talented young lives of Whitney, Staci, Mandi and Lacey that
ended that day in December. Their community and families
were shattered by this tragic event.
I have young daughters as well. I read
about all the wrong way accidents and live in fear. We must
send a message.
Ricky Carter had choices and he made a
choice to drink and drive. We have choices as well and
that is to ensure he serves his full sentence (too short for
4 lives lost) for this crime.
It is stunning that the
families/friends/community have to plea every single year to
keep Ricky Carter serving his full sentence. For shame to
all who participated in that decision.
