This piece of information is why the judge found her guilty, Judge Lawrence Moniz said in court.

And this week, Michelle was sentenced to two-and-a-half years probation meaning she will not have to go to prison immediately, and may never spend time behind bars if her state appeals are ruled successful.

"She called no one", Moniz said in June, despite Carter knowing where Roy was and having his family's telephone numbers.

"I'm unsure when she chose to set her sick plan into motion or why, but when she did she did it relentlessly, it was calculated and it was planned down to a T", Bozzi wrote in the victim-impact statement.

Roy's cousin, Makenna O'Donnell, spoke out to Good Morning America on Friday, saying she disagreed with the judge's decision to let Carter remain free on probation until her appeal.

"Don't be scared. You already made this decision and if you don't do it tonight you're gonna be thinking about it all the time and stuff all the rest of your life and be miserable", she wrote.

'I am heartbroken, ' he said. She gets to eat breakfast.

Michelle Carter was jailed on August 3 for pressuring her boyfriend to commit suicide Why was she accused of persuading him to commit suicide?

While handing down the verdict, Moniz said Roy had followed Carter's instruction and placed himself in a "toxic environment" in his truck, where he used a gas-powered water pump to commit suicide.

Meanwhile, according to the AP, the prosecution sought a sentence of seven to 12 years in prison.

Bozzi said the most "unbelievable" part of Carter's actions was "how she acted after the fact".

"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. "I'm just confused like you were so ready and determined".

"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".

The woman convicted of convincing her boyfriend to kill himself through a series of text messages is getting support from another woman who gained fame because of a high-profile trial.

David Carter, in his letter to Moniz, called tomorrow a "life changing day for my family".

Prosecutors said Carter stayed on the telephone listening to her boyfriend as he died in the truck. "It exceeds the limits of our criminal laws and violates free speech protections guaranteed by the MA and U.S. Constitutions".
