A Massachusetts woman who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter for encouraging her boyfriend to kill himself was sentenced Thursday to 2 1/2-years in prison, but in a shock to the victim’s family, the judge ruled to let her free pending an appeal of the case.
Michelle Carter, 20, was sentenced to 2 1/2-years behind bars, but only has to serve 15 months of that. Carter was also sentenced to five years of probation.
The judge granted a defense motion that would keep Carter out of jail until her appeals in Massachusetts courts are exhausted.
Carter was convicted in June of involuntary manslaughter and faced up to 20 years in prison. Prosecutors requested Carter be sentenced to at least seven years in state prison, but no more than 12 years. Carter’s attorney recommended five years of supervised probation with mental health counseling.
