Michelle Carter deserves sympathy, not jail, says Amanda Knox

Michelle Carter deserves sympathy, not jail, says Amanda Knox

A United States teenager who sent texts to her boyfriend urging him to kill himself has been jailed.

A teenage sister, Camden Roy, recalled her 13 years with her older brother and said she's "haunted" by the realization she'll never see him Wednesday or be an aunt to his children. Asked if this case will ever be over for her, Lynn Roy told "48 Hours" correspondent Erin Moriarty, "No".

Legal experts have said the decision could have national implications as courts grapple with how to apply long-standing laws as technological changes have taken interactions online. "However, Judge Lawrence Moniz said that after the punishment of 15 months imprisonment, the sentence would be suspended until August 1, 2022".

"One interpretation of that is perhaps the judge was thinking that it would be good to keep her close to her support network", the law professor said.

The Judge was however of the opinion that her age, level of maturity or even her mental illness did not have any significant impact on her actions. "She has shown no remorse".

"When I was on trial for murder in Italy, the media tried to paint me as a 'femme fatale.' So it was with a sickening sense of déjà vu that I watched the prosecution attempt the same trick with Carter, whom they said coldly and calculatingly insinuated herself into Roy's vulnerable consciousness", she wrote. He said he will also argue Carter didn't break any laws because MA doesn't have a law against assisting or encouraging suicide. You just have to do it.

Defense attorney, Joseph Cataldo requested five years of supervised probation, arguing that she posed no danger to the public.

"I just don't understand how someone can be free, knowing that she deliberately told him to get back in the vehicle and she gets to sleep in her own bed tonight", Makenna O'Donnell, Roy's cousin, told ABC's David Muir during "Good Morning America".

Sprint has added 88,000 postpaid phone connections in the quarter, its eighth consecutive quarter of net additions. Quarterly revenues totaled $8.16 billion, compared with revenues of $8.01 billion in the first quarter of 2016.

"The communications illustrated a deeply troubled defendant whose actions rose to the level of wanton and reckless disregard for the life of the victim", Healy said in a statement. She gets to wake up with her family.

"She should be behind bars", O'Donnell said. He's watching us from above.

It was said she wanted to win sympathy and attention that came with being the "grieving girlfriend".

On July 12, 2014, a day before Roy was found dead, Carter wrote: "So I guess you aren't gonna do it then, all that for nothing. It exceeds the limits of our criminal laws and violates free speech protections guaranteed by the MA and U.S. Constitutions". "Take away the spotlight that she so desperately craves".
