MA: Aunt of Teen Who Took His Life Says Justice Was Done as Michelle Carter Starts Jail Sentence

An aunt of the teen who killed himself after his girlfriend encouraged him to says his family believes justice has been served.

Conrad Roy III’s aunt spoke to reporters Monday after 22-year-old Michelle Carter was taken into custody to begin serving her 15-month jail sentence for an involuntary manslaughter conviction.

Becky Maki said Carter’s case has been a long and difficult ordeal for Roy’s family. Carter was convicted in 2017 but was allowed to remain free while she appealed in state court.

Maki said it was painful to hear the details of Roy’s death over again in the media and that his family is grateful this is the end.

But Joe Cataldo, an attorney for Carter, said after that the “legal fight is not over.” Carter’s lawyers plan to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.
