Teen Text killer Michelle Carter has a new date with justice, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.

Convicted of involuntary manslaughter on August 3, 2017 after she encouraged her boyfriend, Conrad Roy III, to kill himself, Carter was sentenced to two and a half years in prison, but the time was suspended until the appeal process was completed.

The Massachusetts State Supreme Court Judicial Clerk Francis Kenneally told Radar that Carter’s appeal case date has been set for October.

On August 1, the attorneys were told Carter’s case would be heard in October, Kenneally explained, noting the four days the court meets were scheduled for October 1, 2, 4 and 5, 2018.

“If the attorneys do not have a conflict, then Michelle’s appeal argument will be heard on those days,” Kenneally told Radar.

Prosecutors presented thousands of text messages exchanged between Carter and Roy in the days, hours and minutes leading up to his suicide in a K-Mart parking lot in July 2014.

“You're so hesistant 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 same day she sent him another text that said: “You're ready and prepared. All you have to do is turn the generator on and you bee free and happy. No more pushing it off, no more waiting.”

Carter was sentenced to “2.5 years in the Bristol County House of correction, with 15 months to be served and the balance to spend it with probation for five years from August 3, 2017 to August 1, 2022,” court documents stated after her conviction.
