Her attorney Joseph Cataldo is seated next to her. She was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the suicide of Conrad Roy III.

Over the course of their two-year romance, 18-year-old Conrad Roy and 17-year-old Michelle Carter exchanged a number of text messages. Some of those exchanges included open conversation about personal struggles with depression. More than once, Roy told Carter that he wanted to end his own life, and text messages referenced in trial show that, at first, Carter tried to persuade him from doing so.

After Roy’s death, however, authorities discovered text messages from Carter in which she encourages him to kill himself. In February 2015, Carter was indicted for involuntary manslaughter. She was found guilty in June 2017, and on August 4, she was sentenced to 2.5 years in jail, but will be eligible for probation after 15 months.
