PROSECUTOR GAVE RUTHLESS KILLER 18 MONTHS BEHIND BARS!

KILLER DRIVER LINDSAY CANTER ONLY SPENT EIGHTEEN MONTHS IN THE SLAMMER FOR ROAD RACE DEATH OF HER EX RONALD BALL

In a plea deal with then Calvert County States Attorney Andrew Rappaport, Lindsay Canter was able to skip any meaningful prison time for the reckless and intentional highway mayhem that ended the life of the man who had jilted her, spending only 18 months in the Calvert County Jail. In a plea deal agreed to by the prosecutor during his brief tenure between being elected States Attorney and appointed Circuit Court Judge of Calvert County, Canter was sentenced to seven years in prison with all of the prison time suspended except for eighteen months. Canter pleaded guilty to manslaughter by motor vehicle in the deal with Rappaport, who was saved the trauma of actually having to put on a trial. On Sept. 15, 2017, the deal also included a four year sentence for failing to remain at the scene of a crash. The entire four year term in prison was suspended.

Calvert Sheriff Mike Evans said “in Calvert County traffic crashes have a negative impact on more families annually than any other single event law enforcement is involved with. I continue to ensure deputies are conducting traffic enforcement to remove impaired drivers from our roadways in an effort to prevent tragedies such as this one from occurring. The holiday season should be a time for families and friends to get together and share some great times and to make memories. Please do your part to help prevent an event such as this from destroying your holiday season this year and in the future. If you are hosting or attending a party be sure those that are consuming alcoholic beverages do not get behind the wheel of a vehicle and kill or seriously injure themselves or someone else.”

Alcohol is undoubtedly a factor in this case. If anyone has any information regarding this collision is being asked to contact Sgt. V. Bortchevsky of CRT at 410-535-2800 ext. 2540 or by e-mail: bortchvi@co.cal.md.us
