Carter Released From Jail More Than Three Months Early

ByMyFM's Rick Michaels - The Plainville woman convicted of manslaughter for urging her suicidal boyfriend to kill himself in text messages, was released from jail yesterday morning after she had more than three months shaved from her sentence for good behavior. 23 year old Michelle Carter walked out of the Bristol County jail in Dartmouth, where she’s been since last February, when a judge ordered her to begin serving a 15 month sentence. Carter didn’t speak as two jail staffers escorted her to an SUV where her lawyer and parents were waiting for her and also declined to speak to reporters later in the day, as she reported to her probation office. She also can’t have any contact with her late boyfriend Conrad Roy‘s family and can’t profit from her story during that time. Roy’s aunt speaking to reporters, acknowledged the family is “disappointed” Carter wasn’t required to serve her full sentence, but said that it still “doesn’t change that Conrad is forever gone.” Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson, who oversees the jail where Carter served her sentence, said he understood how Carter’s release could be painful for Roy’s family and others. But he said Carter had been a “model inmate” who stayed out of trouble and participated in jail programs, which under state law allowed her to accrue time off her sentence.
