The most awaited trial of the teen suicide case of Conrad Roy III and Michelle Carter has finally come to an end. The respectable Juvenile Court Judge Lawrence Moniz finds miss Carter guilty of pumping her boyfriend for committing suicide. In the words of law, she is found guilty of involuntarily manslaughter. The text messages and call data, just moments before boyfriend’s suicide helped a lot in investigation.
As the judge read the verdict, Michelle carter was seen sobbing and crying. According the judge, Ms. Carter had great opportunity to ask her boyfriend to get out of the poisonous and toxic vehicle. Quite contrary to that, she asked him to go back in the car and fulfil his long desire to die. Michelle is 20 now, but at the time of the suicidal incident, she was 17 and Roy was 18. She is sentenced for 20 years in prison. At the moment, she is out on bail. But law enforcement institution has limited her movement. She cannot leave the state.
When and How did it happen?
This was not the first time that Roy attempted for suicide. He tried it previously in 2012. This particular incident happened on 12th July 2014. She was at some other place when Roy drove off to Kmart parking lot. He set everything for his suicide before calling on her. He hooked up a water tank that was releasing carbon monoxide. Sooner the cab filled with poisonous fumes. As the boy felt the torture, he left the truck and came out to breathe in some fresh air. In the words of the judge; “He breaks that chain of self-causation by exiting the vehicle,”
This was the point where Michelle acted totally wrong. She could have convinced Roy to come out and get him some help by informing his family. But Michelle Carter did not do anything about it. She was listening to him on the phone while he was suffocating and taking his last breaths. She could have called for help, but she did not. She has admitted this crime in the court room.
In the words of the judge;
“She admits in subsequent texts that she did nothing, she did not call the police or Mr. Roy’s family,” “He takes himself out of that toxic environment that it has become.”

The Final Verdict!
” She instructed Mr. Roy to get back into the truck, well knowing his ambiguities, his fears, his concerns,” This court finds that 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.” He said in the last, “This court, having reviewed the evidence, finds you guilty on the indictment with involuntary manslaughter.”
