MICHELLE CARTER: Gets 15 Months

posted by Edward Johnson -

The young woman who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter for coaxing her teenage boyfriend, through a series of texts and phone calls, to take his own life was sentenced Thursday to 15 months in prison.

Though while she appeals the case, she will not serve time behind bars.

In the case that made national news, a Massachusetts judge decided Michelle Carter was responsible for the suicide of Conrad Roy III because she encouraged him to poison himself with carbon monoxide inside his truck.

Carter was sentenced to two-and-half years in the Bristol County House of Correction, but 15 months were suspended. The judge also granted her a stay of incarceration, so she won't have to spend time in prison while she appeals the case. (The Washington Post)
