Attention: Angela McCown, Director of Victim Services Division

Dear Ms. McCown,

Please consider the everlasting anguish of the families of the victims of Mr. Ricky Carterís reckless, drunken behavior in the collision that cost four young lives and left our community utterly devastated, when he is considered for parole.

The very fact that he can continue to live is enough of an insult to us, let alone his ability to apply for an early parole each and every year of his miserable existence.  My wife and I lost our only daughter to the same kind of driver, leaving us without our child and her three small children to raise.  We share the grief of these girlsí families, and consider a 20 year sentence for his actions to be very minimal.  This being the case, we implore you to see to it that Ricky Carter serves every minute of his too lenient sentence.

To be very frank with you, if it were my daughter he killed, he would be much safer where he is.  I canít speak for the families of the young girls he murdered (yes that is the correct word for his offence) but you might just reflect on the possibility that some of them may feel the way I do.

Ricky Carter is an habitual drunk and will surely kill someone else while in a drunken stupor if and when he is released from jail.  That should not be in the near future.

Please consider my opinion and others when considering this evil entityís release back into our community.
