NATICK, Mass. (AP) — The Massachusetts woman sentenced to 15 months in jail for urging her suicidal boyfriend via text messages to take his own life is asking for early release.
Michelle Carter is scheduled to appear on Thursday before the state Parole Board after serving seven months.
If convicted, how long could Brooke Skylar Richardson spend in prison?
The jury tasked with determining the fate of Skylar Richardson began deliberating Thursday morning around 11:15 a.m. Their deliberations could last minutes, hours or days. Richardson faces four felony charges in connection to her daughter's death in 2017. She is accused of killing the newborn and burying it in her backyard. During the eight-day trial, the 20-year-old's lawyers argued she had a stillbirth and panicked. They also claim her later confessions to police were coerced.
Carter was convicted in 2017 of involuntary manslaughter in the death of 18-year-old Conrad Roy III. The 22-year-old woman, who was 17 at the time of Roy's death in 2014, began her sentence in February.
Roy killed himself by filling his pickup truck with carbon monoxide in a parking lot. When he had second thoughts, Carter texted him to "get back in" the truck.
Carter's attorneys argued her texts were constitutionally protected free speech. Her conviction has been appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court.
