  • 6 questions about Michelle Carter’s conviction in the texting suicide trial, answered - 06/16/2017

    Northeastern School of Law professor Daniel Medwed said he thinks it’s unlikely that Carter will get the full sentence, given the unusual nature of the case.

    “Classic manslaughter charges relate to direct action–a drunk driver killing a pedestrian or a person firing a gun recklessly into a crowd,” he said before Moniz’s decision. “Here, Carter’s actions, as horrible as they were, were one step removed from Roy’s death and perhaps the judge will show leniency.”
