Her initial release date would have been May 5. The staff who interacted with her reported that "she was very interested in getting into as many programs as she possibly could and she did", he said.

In text messages sent in the days before Roy's death, Carter encouraged him to follow through with his suicide plan and chastised him when he didn't. Following her early release, she is now required to serve five years of probation, which allows Carter to serve the rest of her sentence out of prison.

Carter was set free about 9:30 a.m. and picked up by her parents and her attorney, says Darling.

Although Carter's defense acknowledged her exchanges with Roy, her attorneys argued that prosecutors had "cherry-picked" only those text messages that served their case against her, ignoring others in which Carter urged Roy toward help for his struggles.
