  • After guilty verdict in texting suicide case, what’s next for Michelle Carter?

    CNN - 06/16/2017

    Carter is expected to be sentenced August 3, when she could face up to 20 years in prison for the manslaughter charge. But Northeastern University law professor Daniel Medwed said he does not expect Moniz to condemn her to two decades behind bars.

    “I think the judge might show her leniency, given her mental health issues and medications,” as a psychiatrist testified about in her trial, Medwed said. “The conviction sends a strong message, but that doesn’t mean the outcome will be 20 years in prison.”
