*** URGENT ***
You only have one more week to write your letter and submit it to the Prole Board requesting denial of parole for Ricky Carter!
It is once again time to write letters to the Parole Board protesting any consideration of parole for convicted killer Rickey Carter.
For those who may not know, or may not remember – in December, 1998 while driving in a drunken stupor, Rickey Carter lost control of his pickup and crashed head-on into an oncoming car. His reckless disregard for the safety and wellbeing of others caused the death of four precious young teenage girls.
Rickey Carter was given a 20 year sentence for killing the four girls.
The Parole Board will meet October 1st to consider Carter’s 2012 request for parole. Therefore, it is imperative that we write and submit letters to the parole board in opposition to parole for Carter as soon as possible. For instructions concerning submittal of your letter, go to www.keeprickycarterinjail.com. Please send me a copy of your letter to the parole board to be added to the website. My email address is shown below. Don’t forget however, that your letter must be signed and submitted by you to the parole board.
Time has passed and some would argue that we should ‘forgive and forget’.
May I remind you that Carter was given a 20 year sentence for this heinous crime; that’s only five years confinement for each of the four young ladies he killed!
I believe it is important that we not lose site of the fact that while we must forgive, we must also ensure that justice is served – and I believe justice demands that Rickey Carter serve his full 20 year sentence.
Consider this – If Carter is released after serving 15 years of his 20 year sentence, he will have paid his debt to society for killing three of the four girls. What about the fourth girl? Where is the justice in that?
As our memories of the horrific crime fade, we must always remember that justice cannot be served by allowing this killer to go free.
The Criminal Justice system in Texas allowed Rickey Carter to request parole after serving only five years of his 20 year sentence. He may now apply for parole each subsequent year until he is either paroled or serves his full 20 year sentence.
Thank you for the support you have given the families in the past, and I hope we can count on you to write a letter to the Parole Board urging the denial of parole for convicted killer Rickey Carter.
