Michelle Carter Found Guilty In Texting Sucide Case In Massachuttes


"Instructing Mr. Roy to get back in the truck constituted wanton and reckless conduct by Ms. Carter, creating a situation where there is a high degree of likelihood that substantial harm will result to Mr. Roy", Moniz said.

In a trial that lasted a week, prosecutors used Carter's text messages to paint a portrait of a needy, insecure teenager who pushed Roy to kill himself in an effort to gain attention, according to the New York Times. "The fact that she would say to him, 'Your family will get over you.' How is that even - I will never get over him". "I mean, you're about to die", Carter wrote in one message.

Carter will be back in Taunton District Court on August 3 for her sentencing. He ruled that Carter, now 20, can remain free on bail but ordered her not to make any contact with Roy's family and not to leave the state.

Roy, who was 18 at the time, parked his truck in a Kmart parking lot and began pumping carbon monoxide into the vehicle as he sat and inhaled the toxic fumes.

The sensational trial in Taunton offered a window into teen depression and suicide through text messages and Facebook communications.

Another witness, who would only give his first name - which was also Omar, said he chased the driver down a dead-end road. It has been reported that the man who died was receiving medical attention from the public at the time of the incident.


Cataldo said Carter became "overwhelmed" by Roy's suicidal thinking after she initially tried to talk him out of it and urged him to get professional help.

Carter could be sentenced 20 years for involuntary manslaughter. "If you emit 3200 ppm of it for five to ten mins you will die within a half hour", she wrote.

As reported by the Associated Press, Carter's lawyer failed to sway the court with arguments about Roy's history of depression and past suicide attempts.

"I don't think there is sufficient proof of causation", Bailey said yesterday. "You may be seated, that verdict is now recorded and it is in writing as well". Carter urged him to "get back in" to his truck, and he was found dead the next day. A MA judge ruled that she was guilty of involuntary manslaughter after she texted her boyfriend instructions on how to kill himself.

A statement from Martin W. Healy, chief legal counsel to the Massachusetts Bar Association, seemed to support Moniz's decision, saying that Carter's fate "was sealed through the use of her own words".

Medwed said the case is not likely to set a legal precedent, "especially since it still needs to survive appeal". You're just making it harder on yourself by pushing it off.

"Although we are very pleased with the verdict, in reality, there are no winners here today", Assistant District Attorney Katie Rayburn said after Judge Lawrence Moniz found Carter guilty of involuntary manslaughter this morning.

"If you point a gun at somebody, you're pretty much intending to shoot them", Gutterman said.
