Baker’s charges were dismissed due to her cooperation in the investigation and testimony the led to the convictions of the Carrolls. Baker, who now goes by Amy Ramsey, was sentenced to two years in prison in July 2010 in Clermont County after selling prescription pills to a police informant that March.
Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters said the details of Fiesel’s death are not enough to keep Carroll from walking out of prison. Instead, he said the community’s opinion is more powerful.
“I know folks in this community that looked for him that are still upset about the murder of little Marcus,” Deters said. “And hopefully, the public will respond in such a massive effort to stop this from happening because that’s what the parole board listens to.”
Deters said his office has received hundreds of letters from the public, forwarding them to the parole board. He said the board will review Carroll’s prison records and then he and Clermont County Prosecutor Mark Tekulve will get word about the next hearing.
“I don’t want people in the public to think, oh, you know, there’s no way David Carroll gets out of jail,” Deters said. “Well, they’re wrong. There is a very, there is a very clear path to him getting out of jail — and the only thing that’s gonna stop it is public outrage.”
Anyone who wants to submit a written statement concerning this hearing can send it to the Ohio Parole Board, Department of Rehabilitation and Correction, 4545 Fisher Road, Suite D, Columbus, OH 43228. Include the offender’s name and number on any correspondence.
