Michelle Carter, known as the Text Message Killer, was recently given 15 months in prison after she was convicted of involuntary manslaughter for encouraging her boyfriend to kill himself in 2014. The 17-year-old girl told her boyfriend at one point to get help, but then later told him that things would be better off if he killed himself. Many suspect that the young woman was attempting to play the victim and get sympathy by being the girlfriend of the boy who died, however, she neither read a statement at the trial nor had a statement read on her behalf during the either the trial or the sentencing.

Weird requests after Conrad's death

According to Conrad Roy III's aunt, Michelle Carter had a series of bizarre requests for the family after their son died.

After he killed himself, and before the family knew of her involvement in the case, Michelle allegedly contacted them and asked if she could go into his room and take some of this things. It is also reported that Michelle even asked if she could keep some of Conrad's ashes for herself since the pair were together when he ultimately passed away. Looking back and knowing the full extent of her involvement in Conrad's death, his aunt now finds this to be incredibly odd.

Michelle gets a stay and is sued for $4.2 million

Even though Michelle was sentenced to 15 months in prison for her involvement in Conrad Roy III's suicide, she has been granted a stay, meaning she doesn't have to go to jail until she finishes the appeals process for the case. She and her lawyers will be appealing the decision as well as attempting to overturn the sentence, arguing that she was also a troubled teenager and that Roy should not have repeatedly turned to her for help as she kept telling him over and over to kill himself.

However, the judge and jury in the first trial saw that she was guilty of involuntary manslaughter and felt that serving 15 months in jail was an appropriate sentence.

Despite her stay, which the family objects to, Michelle Carter is also being sued for $4.2 million by Roy's family in lost wages that he will never make over his lifetime. This case will continue on in civil court, though it is unclear if Michelle has garnered herself a civil lawyer at this time. It is also unclear how the civil suit will impact the criminal case that is currently going on or when it will take place.

The family has stated that it is very unfair that Michelle is allowed to be free while they no longer have their relative.
