SUPREME COURT PETITION: “Michelle Carter’s conviction for involuntary manslaughter in connection with Conrad Roy III’s suicide is unprecedented. Massachusetts is the only state to have affirmed the conviction of a physically absent defendant who encouraged another person to commit suicide with words alone. Before this case, no state had interpreted its common law or enacted an assisted suicide statute to criminalize such “pure speech,” and no other defendant had been convicted for encouraging another person to take his own life where the defendant neither provided the actual means of death nor physically participated in the suicide.”

DILEMMA ONE SHEET

When does malicious speech become a crime?

COMMONWEALTH

VS 

MICHELLE CARTER

(2017)

INCLUDED IN THIS UNIT ARE THE FOLLOWING:

✔ A ONE SHEET DILEMMA.  Traditionally, one sheets are single page documents that summarize a person’s accomplishments.  They are sometimes used to introduce new artists and/or films. They usually contain an image or two, biographical information, and taglines.  I have created these DILEMMA ONE SHEETS to help students engage in critical reasoning and to introduce them to philosophy, ethics, law, and justice.  They may be used as homework or class work, individual or group work, and even as a seminar or debate preparation.

This case is particularly challenging to summarize.  The trial is not simply about free speech but to understand why one must dissect the judge’s verdict.  He bases his manslaughter verdict on a theory of omission a “wanton or reckless failure to act to alleviate a risk involving a life-threatening condition where there is a duty to take reasonable steps to alleviate the risk.”  His opinion is different than the prosecutor’s,  the defence’s, and the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court. 

18 GOOGLE SLIDES with information and questions for students. 

Teacher notes – these are presented in a One Sheet format – there are five 11×17 pages – so they are equivalent to 10 pages of notes.  You could use the teacher notes as part of an overhead presentation.  Some of these notes are direct quotations from the links below.

✔ I have included 12 pages of texts from the 184 pages that were introduced as evidence.  These pages will present two different sides of the relationship between Michelle and Conrad and will give your students a better understanding of their relationship.

✔ The student One Sheets include the following sub-headings:

My DAILY DILEMMAS are an excellent supplement to any class focusing on ethics, law, justice, argumentative writing, and debate, and they also work well as last-minute sub plans or stand-alone lessons.

Feedback on my Dilemma One Sheets:
