Michelle Carter, woman in suicide texting case, sentenced

August 4, 2017

West-Herald_04carter01_metA 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.

    The appeals could take time. This means that once the appeals run out she may have her life disrupted to serve a prison sentence. If her legal team is able to get a new trial she might come out worse the next time around.

    She got off easy if I were the parents of the boy she induced to committing suicide, so she could receive pity and attention in her school for being his girlfriend, she would have to watch her back and live in fear for the rest of her sorry days. But then my sons were told the truth about girls and their wily ways. I told my sons don’t fight for any girls, if she loves you, she won’t have you fight. They are manipulating bitches and they need shutting down by parents raising strong boys who become men.

    She didn’t just mention the idea of suicide to her boyfriend – she pushed it. This young lady is messed up. Will she do it again? All the texts are on Fox News website. We really need to get God and morality back into our schools; they are creating heartless monsters right now.

    Put a noose around her neck and stand her on a stool… CONTINUOUSLY taunt her to step off the stool till she does it… Marilyn Monroe hair and Groucho Marx eyebrows. If HE would have done the same to her, he would have gotten life in prison, guaranteed !
