Michelle Carter is appealing her conviction due to ’emotional intoxication’
She was sentenced to 15 after texting her boyfriend to suicide
Michelle Carter, found guilty of involuntary manslaughter last month and sentenced to 15 months in prison, just filed a notice to appeal the decision on Thursday.
Last month, Carter was convicted after persuading her boyfriend, Conrad Roy III, to kill himself via text in 2014. The couple met in Florida in 2012, but had only hung out in person a handful of times.
Prosecutors alleged Carter engaged in a “sick game of life and death,” triggering the 18-year-old boy’s suicide.
“Stop thinking and just do it,” she said to Roy in one message. Read the rest of the texts she sent him here.
Carter claims she was “involuntarily intoxicated” by the power she had over Roy, and because Roy had a history of depression and suicidal thoughts, she could not have been the sole cause of his death.
On July 12, Roy died of carbon monoxide poisoning in his pickup truck in a store parking lot in Fairhaven. In a 45 minute phone call immediately preceding his death, Roy allegedly got out of the vehicle.
In a message Carter later sent a friend, she said: “I fucken told him to get back in . . . His death is my fault.”
Carter’s legal team has not yet disclosed precisely when the appeal process will begin, or what is will entail in terms of length and sentencing.
