Woman in 'Texting Suicide' Case Going Free Months EarlyNewser — Evann Gastaldo
Michelle Carter's appeal won't be heard by the Supreme Court, but the woman convicted in Massachusetts' so-called "suicide by text" case is still getting out of prison.
Carter, now 23, will be released next week for good behavior, Boston.com reports. "There have been no problems and she has been attending programs, which is common at state facilities like the Bristol County House of Correction," a rep for the Bristol County Sheriff’s Department tells Boston 25, confirming she will be released Jan. 23.
"We’ve had no discipline issues at all." Carter, who is serving a 15-month sentence for involuntary manslaughter in the 2017 suicide of her 18-year-old boyfriend Conrad Roy III, was originally due to be released in May.
She was 17 when she urged a suicidal Roy, via phone calls and texts, to go through with taking his own life.
