Prosecutors Katherine Love and Ryan Persad are considering whether to have a hearing in which they would argue Carter is absconding.

In allowing Heather to serve her sentence in the community, Poelman noted her "admirable record" for work and volunteering as well as several letters of support and a statement to court in which she expressed remorse.
