Maine man seeks pardon on license revocation
SKOWHEGAN, Maine (AP) — A 35-year-old Maine man whose driver’s license was permanently revoked following a 1996 drunken-driving crash that killed three people wants his license back.
Bryan Carrier, of Skowhegan, has a hearing before the Governor’s Board on Executive Clemency on July 24 seeking to have his driving privileges reinstated. He wants his license back so he can drive to Canada to visit his daughter, the Department of Corrections’ victim advocate wrote in a letter informing the victims’ family members of Carrier’s request.
Carrier pleaded guilty to three counts of manslaughter for driving his father’s pickup truck through a stop sign in Skowhegan and plowing into a minivan. A woman and her 10-year-old son in the van and a 15-year-old boy in Carrier’s truck were killed.
He was sentenced to two years in prison and had his license revoked for life.
Carrier has previously appealed to the Bureau of Motor Vehicles and the Maine Supreme Judicial Court without success to have his license reinstated.
Family members of the victims told the Morning Sentinel (http://bit.ly/10sE2qF) they will fight to prevent Carrier from getting his license back.
They said they want Carrier to stop his appeals so they can stop reliving the memory of their loss.
Carrier could not be reached for comment.
