The Massachusetts woman convicted of involuntary manslaughter for urging her boyfriend to kill himself is being sentenced to two-and-a-half years in prison, with half of that time being suspended.
The judge in Michelle Carter's case said she's committed to 15 months in prison with the rest of the time suspended.
Carter was convicted for sending text messages to Conrad Roy the Third encouraging him to commit suicide.
The 18-year-old Roy killed himself in 2014 after intentionally filling his truck with carbon monoxide. Among the text messages Carter sent to Roy was one telling him to "get back in" his truck as it filled deadly gas.
Carter was tried as a juvenile because she was 17 at the time of Roy's death.
