Michelle Carter, who made national news when she was convicted of involuntary manslaughter, for encouraging her boyfriend to commit suicide through a series of text messages and phone calls, was sentenced in a Massachusetts court this afternoon.

She will serve 15 months in prison.

Conrad Roy III was 18 when he died in July 2014 of carbon monoxide poisoning after locking himself in his truck.

Carter, who was Roy’s girlfriend at the time of his death, went on trial this year, and the prosecution argued that Carter, then 17, was reckless and caused his death by telling Roy to get back in the car even though they say he didn’t want to die.
