The Woman Who Encouraged Her Boyfriend To Kill Himself Has Been Sentenced To 15 Months In Prison
There are all kinds of people in this world. However some are extremely complicated in their minds to the point of being devious in nature deriving sadistic pleasure even from death. Many will have already read about the story of Michelle Carter 20 and how she urged her 18 year old boyfriend to kill himself. Michelle Carter has been sentenced on Thursday last to just 2 and half years in prison for involuntary manslaughter. But lucky for Carter, she won’t have to start serving time until all her state appeals run out. Her incarceration was stayed by Judge Lawrence Moniz on an appeal by her defense lawyer that she still had appeals pending and waiting to move through the Massachusetts court system.
Three years ago on July 12th 2014, carter encouraged her 18 year old boyfriend Conrad Roy to inhale carbon monoxide produced by a water pump in his truck. She even went as far as texting her friends telling them how she forced him to “get back in” because he was scared.
1Only 15 months in prison with a suspension of remaining sentence
Carter may only have to serve 15 months in prison with the remaining sentence suspended till August 1, 2022. Prosecutors were shocked at the light sentence. They instead wanted at least 7 to 12 years whereas her defense appealed for no jail time but 5 years of supervised probation during which she would undergo mental counseling.
Judge Moniz felt her age and maturity as well as her mental instability had no bearing on her actions but she was at a ripe age for rehabilitation which should be balanced along with her sentence. Carter was also prohibited from contacting Conrad’s family or her friends who testified against her.
