Michelle Carter Wiki: Boyfriend, Texts, Sentence & Facts to Know

The text messages sent by Michelle Carter to Conrad Roy

"But Judge Lawrence Moniz said it was her instruction to Roy to get back into the vehicle €" during a telephone call after he stepped out €" and her failure to sound the alarm that was crucial to the conviction. Lynn Roy spoke to CBS' 48 Hours about the conviction of her son's former girlfriend. Carter had been on trial for Roy's death after repeatedly encouraging him to take his own life.

The judge said those words constituted "wanton and reckless conduct". The court also found that Carter was "virtually present" at the time of Roy's suicide.

It is important to bear in mind that when Michelle Carter egged on her boyfriend Conrad Roy to kill himself, she didn't just mention it once in passing in whimsical fashion.

But was she? Maybe I'm naïve to hope that if she had been confronted with a real person instead a cell phone, Carter would have acted differently. When Carter discovered that her boyfriend was suicidal, she initially advised him against it. Their relationship consisted mainly of texting and other electronic communications.

Both teens struggled with depression.

Defense attorney Joseph Cataldo suggested that Roy and Carter had made a suicide pact, likening it Romeo and Juliet.

The sensational trial was closely watched in legal circles and a hot topic on social media, in part because of the insistent tone of text messages Carter sent to Roy. You just need to do it like you did last time and not think about it and just do it babe. You just have to do it. "You can encourage someone to die via text, and you can commit a crime via text", Rayburn said. "It's possible to believe that what she said was terrible and also believe that prosecuting it as manslaughter is not consistent with our manslaughter law and is a threat to free speech".

In the end, the judge found that it was not the coercive text messages that caused Roy's death. At one point, he told Carter that he was scared, but she told him to get back inside. Carter, now 20, is to be sentenced Aug 3 and faces up to 20 years in prison. A sentencing hearing is scheduled for August 3.

According to Cataldo, among Carter's many messages with Roy, she told him to seek "professional help". Carter continued, "But I bet you're gonna be like "oh, it didn't work because I didn't tape the tube right or something like that"..."

But Moniz said when Roy got out of the truck, it proved he wanted to live.

The ACLU in MA has called Conrad Roy's death a tragedy, yet say that there is no law in the state that makes it a crime to try and persuade someone to kill themselves, as Mass Live report.

"This is saying that what she did is killing him, that her words literally killed him, that the murder weapon here was her words", said Matthew Segal, a lawyer with the American Civil Liberties Union of MA, which raised concerns about the case to the state's highest court.

Matthew Segal, legal director for the American Civil Liberties Union of MA, said he thinks the judge's ruling could have a chilling effect on free speech, particularly when it comes to end-of-life discussions with terminally ill people.

The case has set a legal precedent as there is no law in MA which makes telling a person to commit suicide a crime.
