    Lawyers for Michelle Carter, who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in 2017 for pressuring a troubled Massachusetts teenager through texts and phone calls into killing himself, are petitioning the US Supreme Court to review the case.

    The lawyers filed the motion with the Supreme Court on Monday, seeking a review on First and Fifth Amendment grounds. Her communications with Conrad Roy III, the teenager who took his own life, “did not constitute speech that was ‘an integral part of conduct in violation of a valid criminal statute,’ ” the court filing stated.

    The motion also questioned whether Carter’s conviction violated the due process clause of the Fifth Amendment “because in assisted or encouraged suicide cases, the common law of involuntary manslaughter fails to provide reasonably clear guidelines to prevent ‘arbitrary and discriminatory enforcement.’ ”

    In a statement, Carter’s lawyers said her conviction should not stand. She did not cause Roy’s “tragic death and should not be held criminally responsible for his suicide,” said Daniel Marx, an attorney who represents Carter.

    “This petition focuses on just two of the many flaws in the case against her that raise important federal constitutional issues for the US Supreme Court to decide,” he said. “First, charging Ms. Carter based on her words alone violated the First Amendment and the decision upholding her conviction created a conflict among state supreme courts. Second, her conviction violated due process because the vague common law of involuntary manslaughter fails to provide guidance to prevent arbitrary and discriminatory enforcement in morally fraught cases involving suicide.”

    Carter was 17 when she urged Roy, a Mattapoisett resident, to kill himself in July 2014 — even after he told her he was too scared to go through with it. After a bench trial that drew national headlines, Judge Lawrence Moniz in June 2017 found Carter, of Plainville, guilty of involuntary manslaughter.

    I wonder how THIS will play out in the Supreme Court.  This girl is convicted of murder basically without laying a finger on her victim.  If SCOTUS says otherwise, they may have to rethink the entire justice system as far as the crime and punishment for murder is concerned.

    Just Saying.
