Michelle Carter was released more than three months early from a county jail in MA, where she had been serving a 15-month sentence.

Last week, Jonathan Darling-a spokesman for the sheriff's office in Bristol County, Mass. -told E!

Following a highly publicised trial, Carter was handed a two-and-a-half-year sentence for involuntary manslaughter, which was reduced to 15 months.

"The time is right and you are ready ... just do it babe", Carter, who was 17 at the time, wrote in a text the day Roy, 18, killed himself.

The case drew widespread attention for its focus on teenage suicide, digital romance, and the legal gray area of whether someone can be convicted for another person's suicide. She had held down a job serving at the prison cafeteria.

"Good behavior means a number of things-inmates can earn up to 10 days every month off their sentence for doing things like attending programs, having a job inside the jail, not fighting with other inmates or staff or not causing any trouble". She also didn't testify in her defense at the trial. The staff who interacted with her reported that "she was very interested in getting into as many programs as she possibly could and she did", he said. "From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank everyone who has supported my family over the last 5 years". News at the time.

Wendy Williams and Kevin Hunter finalize their divorce
He will maintain ownership of his businesses and his cars, including a Ferrari and Rolls Royce, as well. Wendy and Kevin's breakup was in the headlines for several months before it was finally confirmed.

The phone call wasn't recorded, but the judge relied on a text Carter sent her friend in which she said she told Roy to get back in.

Carter was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in 2017 after texts she sent to her then-boyfriend, Conrad Roy, before he died by suicide in 2014, were deemed "reckless" by a MA juvenile court judge.

The lawyers also argued that there was simply not enough evidence to prove Carter urged Roy to get back in his truck to die, or that he would have lived if she had called for help or taken other actions to try and save his life.

Carter was tried as a juvenile and found guilty in 2017. Her case was the first in history where someone was convicted of manslaughter for using their words.

But a MA appeals court rejected those arguments, saying she "helped plan how, where, and when" her boyfriend would kill himself, "downplayed his fears about how his suicide would affect his family" and "repeatedly chastised him for his indecision", the judges found.

The last week's events have given the Roy family a sense of closure, said Rebecca Maki, Roy's aunt and a spokeswoman for the family.

"If this were done all over again, Michelle Carter would not have charted the same course that she did", he said. He lets her go because she's a good girl?
