Woman gets jail in texting-suicide case

(USA TODAY) A Massachusetts woman convicted of involuntary manslaughter for urging her boyfriend in dozens of texts to go through with his suicide was sentenced to 2 ½ years in jail Thursday, but was freed on probation pending legal appeals of the case.

Juvenile Court Judge Lawrence Moniz said that Michelle Carter would, in any case, only have to serve 15 months of the full sentence and would then face five years of probation.
