Request for an Increased sentence for Killer Driver, Arron Carter.
We are writing this to push for a review of the sentencing of Arron Carter of Leicester. Who killed an innocent little girl in later October 2022.
The family of a 14-year-old girl who was killed by a speeding driver have asked for his sentence to be increased.
Aaron Carter was estimated to have been driving at about 55mph on a 30mph road before he mounted a pavement and hit, Tehleigher Bunting in October.
She had been walking arm-in-arm with a friend at the time.
Carter was given a nine-year custodial sentence after admitting causing death by dangerous driving at Leicester Crown Court.
However, the judge told him he would only serve half of this in prison and the rest on licence.
He will also have several months deducted because he was on remand since being charged on 28 October.
Carter had been told he should not be driving, due to having epilepsy, but he had ignored medical advice.
Toxicology tests also found he had nearly twice the legal levels of cannabis in his blood for driving.
Carter was also disqualified from driving for life but the family fear he will ignore this.
A 9 year sentence for pleading guilty, He was given a reduction of 2 days for every 1 day spent in jail before sentencing took place, meaning his sentance will be reduced by a further 3 and half months. He will only serve 3 years and 10 months in jail after the fact.
Please tell us how this sentence is acceptable.
We will try to get as many signatures as possible to get this sentence overturned and increased.
(Cousin of Tehleigher)
Why is this important?
I think its well and truly disgusting that a man can kill a young child and not spend the rest of his life in jail.
We ask his sentance to be increased for the safety of the life's of other innocent pedestrians on the streets. If he gets out after 4 years, what is stopping him from getting into a vehicle again and doing the same?
Your hands will be covered in blood if you allow this to happen. Same as ours, We must act now to keep this man in jail for as long as possible.
