    The Court just upheld her conviction.

    She is going to prison for 15 months.

    I hope it is HORRIBLE for her.

    I want to know, after all her "freedom", what exact day she will finally report to prison. Or will she go to Disney World first.

    RSBM for ¶ 2
    You post had expressed what I always thought about CR's state of mind when he exited the truck fighting to survive and seeking help from MC. But help was not available as she was actually capable of doing - if she had cared.
    Indeed the court affirms this in it's decision
    From p. 18 -
    ETA: And also ( from p. 11/12)

    Unfortunately not immediately it seems. Def. may appeal to US Supreme Ct. but prosecutors now need to file a motion in the Juvenile Court to revoke the stay and impose the sentence.

    She was tried as a juvenile even though she turned 18 a mere matter of a couple of weeks after Conrad's death.
    So Steleheart is what you are saying is prosecutors need to ask permission from the juvie court before they can send her off?
    Why,didn't this just over ride any of that? Seems I am confused too.

    Just a bit of clarification first - here in MA we distinguish between jail and prison as a county run facility vs a state run facility. I just like to imagine her in state prison as opposed to jail , heh.. But as I understood in the beginning she was being tried under the "youthful offender" law but faces the possibility of adult sentencing. So since she was tried in Juvenile Court at an adult age, the Juvenile Court has jurisdiction over the final sentence and whether the stay is vacated and sentence is imposed right away, or instead, upholds the stay pending further appeal.

    Soo... I found this explanation by Legal Analyst Daniel Medwed via WGBH:

    Massachusetts high court upholds Carter's texting suicide conviction

    I hope this works as I do not always do good copying and pasting these things.

    It says here Bristol County House of Corrections which would be the big house. I thought once this decision was made that it was a done deal. Also her attorneys said they might "possibly" appeal it.

    ETA: I am hoping her trips to Disney and all the other nice places she has got to enjoy since Conrad's death are over.

    Even if it's only 15 months, I hope they put her in prison asap. There's plenty of convicts sitting in cells waiting for their appeals to be heard, she should be no different. And Conrad and his family deserve justice.

    And I usually don't post things like this but I really hope she gets the snot beat out of her in prison. Smug little b****.

    Dear Jewels53,

    Thank you for this information! Greatly appreciated, as always.

    It's always been my belief that were it not for her, Conrad would be alive and happy in his life.

    She ripped his future from him and his loved ones and it has been so heartwrenching to follow this case.

    My heart continues to be with Conrad's loved ones.

    According to the local news they just said she is not in prison as of yet.
    I looked for a link but could not find it.
