Michelle Carter, the Massachusetts woman convicted of involuntary manslaughter for persuading her boyfriend to kill himself, was released from prison Thursday, months ahead of schedule due to good behavior.
Carter, now 23, began serving a 15-month sentence in February, but she earned time off her sentence for good behavior, according to Jonathan Darling, spokesman at the Bristol County Sheriff's Office.
She left the Bristol County House of Correction at about 9:30 a.m., video from CNN affiliate WHDH shows. Wearing a black turtleneck, a light blazer and black pants -- the same outfit she wore the day she was sentenced -- Carter walked off prison grounds surrounded by guards and got into a waiting SUV.
Carter's release ends a saga that began when Conrad Roy III, 18, killed himself in July 2014. Investigators discovered scores of text messages from Carter in which she, according to prosecutors, berated Roy and encouraged him to go through with the suicide, even after he expressed hesitation.
"I thought you wanted to do this. The time is right and you're ready, you just need to do it! You can't keep living this way," she wrote in one exchange.
Carter listened over the phone as Conrad Roy suffocated from carbon monoxide inhalation in his pickup truck, and they said she did not tell his parents or authorities when he died. Her defense attorneys said that Carter was a troubled and delusional young woman and that Roy had long been intent on killing himself.

Talking someone in that state of mind off of a ledge should be more than 15 months.
I can’t even imagine how SICK you have to be to do this and what else you’re capable of.
When did gaslighting become a crime?
Pussy pass in the light sentence to begin with, and in the early release.
And tell me women here would be happy if a man only got 15 months for the same mental abuse leading to a girlfriends death and then got early release.
I think it should be zero. I see him as a darwin award case.
I always blame the person in suicide cases. To be more precise, I never blame some other person.
Wonder who will play her in the Netflix movie? Our society is pathetic.
I can’t say what I think about you because of this post and others because you’re kind of a miserable person OR you like the attention of writing a post like that :)
you’re so sad bro :)
She is taking applications to be her next BF
I suspect you are projecting. I believe that if a person can convince another adult to kill themself, the latter is the problem.
But if the dead guy was a minor, and the perp was an adult, I’ll revise my position on this.
When did gaslighting become a crime?
Well, arent you a peach.
Hard to know what to do in this case. Being a rotten, horrible person is not a crime. Having no conscience is not a crime. What she actually did is a borderline crime.
Never mind. I just read this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_of_Conrad_Roy
I stand by my posts. My darwin award one may have been harsh, especially if someone in this thread was a friend of family member. But I would not blame her, though what she did was disgusting.
Your quick lash out it me is troubling, though. It was not justified. Well, it wasn’t unless he was your brother, close relative or friend. In which case I sincerely apologize.
Someone named Bella Thorne already did on “Lifetime”
Lots of articles. Hundreds of replies.
probably more that didn’t get keyworded. I’ve followed this for years. Still don’t have an opinion on it. Which is strange, cause I have correct opinions on EVERYTHING.
There’s a movie called 13 Reasons. I won’t see it. Ultimately the blame for a suicide rests solely on the dummy that offed himself. Others may be a contributing factor. This chick certainly has more than her fair share of blame.
But those who kill themselves are selfish jerks.
Hey! She’s available guys!................
Conrad & Michelle: If Words Could Kill (2:13)
I wonder if she live streamed her exit.
There was a two part documentary out earlier last year.
She was a wack job. He was no all there either.
