Michelle Carter found guilty of involuntary manslaughter

Parmenio Sano | 19 Giugno, 2017, 04:10

Roy committed suicide by running a generator in his truck as he sat in a parking lot in Fairhaven, Massachusetts, about 60 miles (96 km) south of Boston. They remained in frequent contact through emails and text messages but rarely met in person. You're just making it harder on yourself by pushing it off.

Segal said this conviction stepped outside of the limits of local laws, and violates free speech as laid out in the US and MA constitutions.

Though the ACLU's Segal called Roy's death tragic, he said "it is not a reason to stretch the boundaries of our criminal laws or abandon the protections of our Constitution".

"It's a new day and age, your honor, and the phones that we have now allow you to be virtually present with somebody", Rayburn said.

The judge's verdict, at bottom, was that words can kill.

Michelle Carter's texts urging her boyfriend, Conrad Roy III, to commit suicide has been convicted of involuntary manslaughter in his death.

The final piece of evidence that Carter contributed directly to Roy's death was her admittance through text that she was not attempting to seek any help for her boyfriend, nor did she ever direct him to remove himself to safety.

“She did not issue a simple additional instruction: Get out of the truck, ” the judge said.

On Friday, the outcome of the controversial trial against Carter was revealed - and it was an unprecedented ruling: Carter was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter. "Even if somebody supports another individual in a suicide, it doesn't create a homicide", the defense added.


"I think she needs to be held responsible for her actions 'cause she knew exactly what she was doing and what she said", she told correspondent Erin Moriarty.

The trial hinged on a sprawling archive of text messages in which Carter and Roy each shared their inner demons, including his depression and desire to kill himself and her eating disorder.

"I thought you wanted to do this".

Justice was served by the conviction of Michelle Carter in the death of Conrad Roy III but the tragedy of the case leaves no room for celebration, the prosecution said in a statement Friday.

Carter ordered him by phone to "get back in". In another exchange, Carter told Roy she would look like a "fool" if he didn't kill himself perhaps because she'd been telling people her boyfriend was suicidal.

Reporter Jess Bidgood tweeted that conditions set for Carter's bail include a halt on social media: "No texting, no Facebook, no snapchat".

Moniz set Carter free on bail until her sentencing on August 3.

The case 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.
