RE: Parole Review
Offender: Ricky  Carter
State ID: 06227942
TDCJ ID:01009150
Placed in parole review on 07/05/05

Please register my protest to the parole release of a deadly drunk
driver, Ricky  Carter, referenced above. I do this in memory of:
Staci Lee, Mandi McWhorter, Lacey Osina and Whitney Welch, the four
Brock, Texas teens who died as a result of Carter’s criminal actions.
If released, Carter will have served only 15 months per life which he
stole. Please ask yourself if this is seriously enough time for the
precious life of each of these girls who had such promising futures.
They will never see their graduation, attend college to fulfill their
dreams. No scholarships can ever be rewarded. Their families will never
see them marry or have children.
The most precious memories have been stolen from Mandi, Whitney, Lacey and Staci. They can never be replaced. Their families and loved ones have been stripped from every event in their lives involving the girls. What good can come from Carter’s release into society.
His lawyer, Jerry Loftin has repeatedly said Carter was a productive
member of society, that he took in and raised minority children. You
must ask yourself “what if one of those children had been in the
vehicle with him Dec. 19, 1998?”
Carter is not a productive member of society, he never has been. Are you willing to risk the lives of other children, perhaps your own to take
such a repercussion? I can tell you the citizens of Parker County are not. I for one, do not wish to risk the lives of my precious children, to make room for another hot check writer. Please consider the motion to keep Carter incarcerated and keep our streets and highways safe. Please do this for the sake of avoiding future accidents.


Sincerely,
Danie M. Huffman
