    Daniel Medwed, a law professor at Northeastern University, also praised the decision, noting Ms. Carter’s age as well as her own mental health issues.

    “I suspect the judge opted for the house of detention rather than state prison to keep her close to her family and support network, given the emphasis that he placed on rehabilitation in his remarks,” Mr. Medwed said.
