Prison officials told KOCO 5 that more inmates are asking to shorten their sentence. The Pardon and Parole Board said it expects to get more commutation applications as criminal justice reform efforts continue in Oklahoma. "The reason commutation has gone up? The laws changed. Pure and simple," said Steve Bickley, executive director of the Pardon and Parole Board. He said that, with more cases being heard, there are more recommendations for inmates who want commuted sentences. According to Bickley, submitted applications are up 260% from 2018.

The judge found then-17-year-old Carter caused Roy’s 2014 death when she ordered him in a phone call to get back in his carbon monoxide-filled truck that he’d parked in a Kmart parking lot.

TAUNTON, Mass. — Michelle Carter , the Massachusetts woman convicted in June of involuntary manslaughter for encouraging a close friend, through text messages and phone calls, to commit suicide , was sentenced on Thursday to 15 months in a county jail.

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 didn’t take the stand at her trial.

Carter’s attorneys argued her texts were constitutionally protected free speech. The state Supreme Judicial Court, however, disagreed, upholding her conviction in February.

Carter’s lawyers have since appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court, but the nation’s highest court hasn’t decided whether it will take up the case yet.

Carter, meanwhile, began her sentence in February at the Bristol County House of Corrections in Dartmouth, the same jail where disgraced New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez served time for murder.

Carter’s case has garnered national attention and sparked legislative proposals to criminalize suicide coercion.

The case was the subject of a two-part HBO documentary that was released in July.
