OH FUCK OFF!!!! This wasn't assisted suicide it was at best coerced suicide. Assisted suicide is more like what Kevorkian did, not this bullshit.
The involuntary manslaughter conviction of a young woman who encouraged her boyfriend through dozens of text messages to kill himself was upheld Wednesday by Massachusetts’ highest court.
Carter’s lawyers said in an email they are disappointed in the ruling and will consider appealing to the U.S. Supreme Court, among other legal options. Carter, now 22, was sentenced to 15 months in jail, but has remained free while she pursues her appeals.
It might have something to do with the Boyfriends State of mind, and her taking advantage of that weakness. I wouldn't consider it to be perfectly normal to want to attempt suicide, such that they may be considering him mentally fragile & easily manipulated, treating it like they might had the victim been mentally retarded. I have no more knowledge of the case than you but that would be my guess.

I'm a little surprised she hasn't won any appeals. Telling someone to do something doesn't usually make you criminally responsible (and I'm absolutely not talking morally responsible here, she's a POS). I'm also not sure why part of the ruling had to do with the fact that she didn't call police - isn't that legally only the responsibility of mandatory reporters?
Maybe I'm missing some laws she broke though, since I'm not sure how else she would lose an appeal. Good riddance either way.
The dude was a very weak ass fucker and he was going to kill himself one day, with or without her urging.‘‘I thought you wanted to do this. The time is right and you’re ready — just do it babe,’’ Carter wrote in one message.
‘‘You’re finally going to be happy in heaven. No more pain. It’s okay to be scared and it’s normal. I mean, you’re about to die,’’ she wrote in another.

Lawyers for Carter argued that her conviction violated her constitutional right to freedom of speech.
The Massachusetts woman who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter for encouraging her boyfriend to kill himself filed an appeal to the Supreme Court Monday.
Michelle Carter, 22, was sentenced to 15-months in prison for her role in the death of Conrad H. Roy III, who died in 2014 by inhaling carbon monoxide inside his pickup truck in Fairhaven, Massachusetts, while on the phone with Carter.
A judge found Carter contributed to Roy's death by telling him to "get back in" his truck as it was filling with poisonous fumes. She was 17 at the time and only about a month out of a psychiatric hospital when Roy took his own life.
The Massachusetts Supreme Court upheld Carter's conviction in February, arguing that " the evidence against the defendant proved that, by her wanton or reckless conduct, she caused the victim's death by suicide."
Lawyers for Carter argued that the conviction violated her 1st Amendment right to free speech in a writ of certiorari petition to the Supreme Court of the United States filed Monday.
shes a complete sociopath attention whore & deserves full time& eliminated from society completely, anyone doing a special on her deserve to be flamed if they didn't demonize her completelyThis cunt just doesn't get it does she?
Somebody needs to tell her to just quietly do her time then she can start her career as a bottom feeding cam girl because no one in hell is ever going to hire her into the regular workplace.
