To Whom It May Concern, 

I am writing to request that you deny the parole of the murderer Ricky Carter. The night of December 19, 1998 and the phone call I received explaining Staci, Whitney, Mandi and Lacey's wreck will haunt me for the rest of my life. 

I cannot begin to comprehend the thought process of the legal system to even consider this parole. Ricky Carter stole the lives of four beautiful, smart, funny, lively and awesome women. I cannot begin to express the sadness of not being able to see or talk to any of them again. Ricky Carter made an adult decision to get behind the wheel of his truck after drinking and now he needs to suffer the adult consequences. For him to only serve 5 years and be let out on "good behavior" is preposterous! What about his behavior on December 19th? He needs to serve the maximum time, which is very small in relation to the crime he has committed. Wont you please hear our cries?!? Justice can never be truly served for what he has done, but at least his time to think about the devastation he has caused, can last longer than 5 years. I am hurt that to some, 5 years is all my friends lives were worth. 

Sincerely,

Holly Henry (Painter)
