Teen text killer Michelle Carter has been granted 10 more days of early release from prison for “good behavior,” RadarOnline.com exclusively learned.
Carter is serving a 15-month prison sentence for involuntary manslaughter in the death of her boyfriend, Conrad Roy III, with whom she exchanged over 20,000 text messages, many encouraging him to kill himself.
“She has earned 10 more days of good time and her estimated release date is now March 3, 2020,” Bristol County Sheriff Spokesman Jonathan Darling told Radar.
Radar previously reported that Carter had an original release date of May 5, 2020, but due to her good behavior, her sentence release date was changed to March 13, 2020.
She petitioned the Parole Board for an early release, but that was denied in Sept. 2019.
“Every month she can earn up to 10 days on good behavior,” Darling told Radar about Carter's new release date.
“She’s been polite to staff and has been no problem at all,” Darling said about Carter’s conduct behind bars.
He told Radar that Carter will be given a special meal on Christmas, which is standard for all inmates incarcerated over the holidays.
The notorious prison, which once housed the late NFL killer Aaron Hernandez, does not have special holiday activities for the inmates.
Unlike the jail where Jodi Arias was held behind bars before her conviction, Carter would not be participating in any holiday singing contests, Darling told Radar.
“There are no special events for the inmates over Christmas.”
“On Christmas the inmates are given turkey or ham, the food staff makes them something special,” Darling said.

“You're so hesistant sic because you keep overthinking it and pushing it off. You just need to do it Conrad. The more you push it off, the more it will eat at you,” Carter texted to Roy on July 12, 2014 as he wavered in his decision to kill himself.
The Teen Text Killer appeared in leg, waist and wrist shackles at her parole hearing on September 19, 2019, where she asked for leniency in her 15-month sentence for the involuntary manslaughter conviction she received for encouraging Conrad Roy III to kill himself.
The parole board denied her request for an early release. Board Member 2 noted they concurred with the decision. “Given subject’s behavior in facilitating victim’s death, release not compatible with best interest of society. Did not provide sufficient insight into reason for lack of empathy at the time of crime and surrounding time period.”
Roy’s body was found on July 13, 2014 in his truck in a K-Mart parking lot in Massachusetts. He had died by inhaling carbon monoxide and his death was ruled a suicide.
“Sam he just called me and there was a loud noise like a motor and I heard moaning like someone was in pain and he wouldn’t answer when I said his name I stayed on the phone for like 20 mins that’s all I heard,” Carter wrote to her friend on the night of Roy’s death.
Carter was only 17 when Roy died, a factor the judge took into account when sentencing her to only 15 months for her “wanton and reckless” behavior in the case.
“I think he just killed himself,” Carter wrote in a text message to her friend Samantha Boardman when she stopped hearing back from Roy in July 2014.
