Some of you may recall the texting suicide that took place a few years ago. The verdict was recently delivered for the teenager – now a woman, who though texts urged a young man into following through with his plans to commit suicide. He succeeded.
She and her lawyers argued that this young man was struggling with life and suicide was what he felt would bring him peace. His friend claimed that even though she had felt responsible for not stopping him, she also felt that it was inevitable and she was trying to be supportive of what she felt he wanted.
She has been found guilty and her sentencing will take place shortly that will carry a maximum of 20 years.
Do you agree with this sentencing? Do you feel that suicide is a punishable crime? Do you feel that someone’s actions should be blamed on someone else?
