Watch Conrad Roy’s father react to Michelle Carter’s guilty verdict

The father of Conrad Roy III thanked prosecutors and police in a brief statement Friday after Michelle Carter was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the 2014 death of Roy III.

“On behalf of our entire family, I would like to say how thankful we are to Judge Moniz and the prosecution team — mainly Katie Rayburn, Maryclare Flynn, and Scott Gordon — and the Plainville Police Department and the Massachusetts State Police,” Conrad Roy Jr. said. “This has been a very tough time for our family, and we’d like to just process this verdict that we’re happy with.”

Juvenile Court Judge Lawrence Moniz found that Carter caused the death of Roy III, who intentionally filled his truck with carbon monoxide in a store parking lot in July 2014.


Carter, 20, could face up to 20 years in prison.
