The authorities, however, maintained that when Carter was 18, she sent her teen friend Conrad Roy text messages that "wantonly and recklessly" caused him to poison himself in a vehicle with carbon monoxide in 2014.
When he became sick from the fumes and stepped out, prosecutors said, Carter ordered him by phone to "get back in".
"This court finds that instructing Mr. Roy to "get back in" the truck constitutes wanton and reckless conduct by Ms Carter", the judge said.
Carter was 17 in July 2014 when she encouraged Roy, 18, who she called her boyfriend, to kill himself.
"I love you and greatly appreciate your effort and kindness toward me", Roy's note to Carter read. "Finally, she did not issue a simple additional instruction [to Roy]: 'Get out of the truck'".
According to Bristol Assistant District Attorney Maryclare Flynn, Carter had asked Roy more than 40 times when he was going to commit suicide. Roy and Carter had been in contact with each while he died.

A new platform for Whole Foods? How deal could upend grocery
On the surface, this acquisition may look odd, but Amazon acquiring troubled Whole Foods is more than timely for both companies. The fact that food sales aren't the core of Amazon's business is likely keeping Canadian food retail executives up at night.
"If you point a gun at somebody, you're pretty much intending to shoot them", Gutterman said.
"They know how sad you are and they know that you're doing this to be happy, and I think they will understand and accept it". Having second thoughts, he left the truck, and Carter told him to "get back in".
He said he was surprised at the verdict because Carter was not at the scene and Roy ultimately acted along, and it was hard to prove she "caused" the death. Yet she did not call the police or Roy's family.
The parents of the Conrad Roy III, whose then-girlfriend was convicted for his manslaughter after urging him by text to commit suicide, have broken their silence.
The court heard she had also helped him devise the method of his death, even searching the internet for the "best way" to die.
Segal said this conviction stepped outside of the limits of local laws, and violates free speech as laid out in the US and MA constitutions. "We'd like to just process this verdict".
