Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nydailynews.com: “Michelle Carter asks parole board for early release after serving nearly half of 15-month sentence in texting suicide case”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Behind bars for pushing her boyfriend to suicide with a series of text messages, Carter asked for an early release as she appeared before the state parole board in Massachusetts on Thursday. She has served seven months as part of her 15-month sentence.

The 22-year-old Carter was convicted in 2017 of involuntary manslaughter in connection with the death of Conrad Roy, who took his own life three years before in a Kmart parking lot in Fairhaven, Mass. He was 18.

Carter began serving her sentence earlier this year after exhausting her appeals. A decision by the parole board was not announced Thursday.

Text messages sent by Carter to Roy included, “you keep pushing it off and say you’ll do it but u never do. It’s always gonna be that way if u don’t take action.”

“I think your parents know you’re in a really bad place," she also wrote. “I’m not saying they want you to do it, but I honestly feel like they can except it. They know there’s nothing they can do, they’ve tried helping, everyone’s tried.”
