Well, we received our notification for Carterís parole hearing a
lot earlier this year. We usually have a little more time to
regroup before the next round. Weíre not sure why itís so early
this time. Many of you asked us to let you know when we receive
our notification so you can send your yearly letter requesting
denial of parole. He still has two years left to serve, but
thereís a big possibility they may release him early. Your
letters as always are so very important.
Below is the letter
we received. If you have any questions regarding your letters,
just message us. Remember to include his name, state id# and
TDJC# at the top of your letter.
Thank you for remembering Lacey, Mandi, Staci and Whitney and
speaking on their behalf.
All our love.❤️
(Please feel free to share.)
