Dominic Carter has agreed to go to jail. Friday his team attempted to delay the 30-day sentence pending an appeal, a request refused by the judge. In light of this development, Carter has determined that it would be best to “put this chapter behind him and immediately move forward with his life and career,” said his lawyer in a statement.
His timing is not without symbolic freight, notes the Post:
Yesterday’s change of heart means that Carter will remain in the Rockland County Jail until Feb. 14 —. He must also stay away from his wife for two years unless a psychiatrist assures the judge Carter is no longer a threat to her.
