Belmont man whose mother, brother were hacked to death could be freed
Carter, who is handicapped and poor, according to his lawyer, public defender Jesse Friedman, has been held on $200 cash bail in the Belknap County jail in Laconia since his arrest on a driving-after-suspension charge. Friedman has refused to comment on the nature of his client's disability.
But he is scheduled to appear in Franklin Superior Court on the charge and a bail violation charge regarding failure to pay a past traffic fine, court officials said.
But judges don't typically order jail sentences in driving offenses. If he is found guilty, Friedman said he will ask the judge to give Carter credit for time already served, and ask for his release
He said he doesn't see his client's potential release as any threat to the public.
"As far as I'm concerned, he's being held on cash bail for driving after suspension, and people charged with that are not generally considered harmful to the public," Friedman said. "I have no information that he would be a danger to anyone before or after (today's) trial."
Asked specifically about whether Carter was a threat to the public if released, he reiterated what he has said in past days about the case.
