On April 17, 1996, Frederick Carter and his accomplice took the life of Lawrence Leon during the armed robbery of his Birmingham, Alabama restaurant. Carter, the one who shot and murdered Mr. Leon, already had a long criminal record. He was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison, which allows him to be considered for parole. His accomplice was convicted of Capital Murder and sentenced to life without the possibility of parole. Mr. Leon, a life-long Birmingham resident and popular business man, was active in his community and church. He was a loving husband to Joann; father to Fran, Phil and Rosie; and devoted grandfather of six. Please help our family and friends voice the outrage against the consideration of parole for Frederick Carter, a menace to society, who committed this violent crime. Speak for Mr. Leon- please sign our petition to keep this murderer behind bars.
