A judge is ordering Michelle Carter to spend 15 months in prison for talking her boyfriend into killing himself.
Carter was sentenced in Bristol Juvenile Court yesterday, and is allowed to remain free as her case is appealed.
Prosecutors had been seeking a sentence of seven to 12 years in prison for the Plainville woman, who was convicted of manslaughter at trial.
She was accused of texting Conrad Roy the Third repeatedly and urging him to take his own life, which he did in 2014.
Springfield Attorney says that the sentence was reasonable, not too high or low and was about what a person would get in a drunk driving case.
