Conrad Roy's Family Breaks Silence After Michelle Carter's Sentencing

Woman who encouraged boyfriend to kill himself faces 20 years in prison

Roy, 18, was found near a compression pump that had filled the vehicle with carbon monoxide, in a Kmart parking lot in Fairhaven, Massachusetts.

Carter was sentenced to 2.5 years, but the judge shared that she would only have to spend 15 months in jail.

Regarding the sentencing, Medwed said his impression was that the judge was trying to make sure that Carter, then 17, served time near her home by assigning her to a county and not state facility.

While Moniz allowed Carter to remain out on probation until her appeals through the state system come to an end, the stay does not hold for appeals to federal court.

Healy said the verdict, which captured widespread attention, will have "national implications" and is "a clarion call that seemingly remote and distant communications will not insulate individuals from heinous acts that could rise to the level of criminal culpability". "Where was her humanity?" asked Roy's father.

Moniz said in court Thursday afternoon that although he does not believe Carter's age, maturity level or mental health issues had a significant impact on her actions in 2014, her youth gives her a better chance at rehabilitation.

Dismayed by the judge's ruling in the controversial case, Roy's cousin, Makenna O'Donnell, expressed her feelings on Good Morning America.

"This was a disgusting circumstance that she completely regrets".

Prosecutor Maryclare Flynn called probation "just not reasonable punishment" for Carter's role in Roy's death. She sent him numerous messages encouraging him to commit suicide. He said his appeal will be based on several grounds, including his argument Carter's text messages and conversations with Roy amounted to free speech protected by the Constitution.

When Roy suggested they should be like Romeo and Juliet, the lovers who killed themselves in the Shakespeare play, Carter said she didn't want them to die, the court was told.

"Don't be scared. You already made this decision and if you don't do it tonight you're gonna be thinking about it all the time and stuff all the rest of your life and be miserable", she wrote.

Meanwhile, according to the AP, the prosecution sought a sentence of seven to 12 years in prison. The family's attorney told Boston 25 News the plan is for the family to memorialize Conrad Roy III. He could also have combined a DYS commitment with an adult sentence, or could have given her an adult sentence of anything from probation to the maximum 20-year term.

Cataldo said he's confident Carter eventually will be vindicated. "Part of me wants you to try something and fail just so you can go get help". "I really don't know what I'm waiting for. but I have everything lined up". On Friday, she penned an op-ed in The Los Angeles Times arguing against Carter's involuntary manslaughter conviction.
