Michelle Carter, the woman who sent texts to her boyfriend urging him to kill himself when they were both teenagers, has been released from prison early due to good behavior.
Carter, now 23, has been a “model inmate” at the Bristol County House of Correction in Dartmouth, Massachusetts, since she arrived in February 2019, Jonathan Darling, public information officer for the Bristol County Sheriff’s Office, told ABC News.
She was picked up by her parents, David and Gail Carter, and her attorney Joe Cataldo.
Carter wore the same grey blazer and black pants she wore when she entered the jail and was accompanied by three sheriff’s deputies carrying trash bags of her belongings.
Inmates can earn “good time” — up to 10 days a month — by attending programs, having a job and avoiding disciplinary problems, Darling said. Carter would attend some vocational and educational programs and held a job serving meals in the cafeteria.
In addition, she was “polite” to jail staff and volunteers and got along well with fellow inmates, Darling said.
“We’ve had no problems with her at all,” he added.
