Roy's father, Conrad Roy Jr., said his son's death inflicted the "worst emotional pain" he has ever experienced.
She also sent Roy a list of various ways he could kill himself.
Ahead of Carter's sentencing Thursday, Roy's family had urged the judge to impose the maximum 20-year sentence.
Flynn said Carter "undertook a deliberate, well-thought-out campaign" to cause Roy's death in a "quest for attention" and sympathy from her friends. Carter texted that she and Roy were on the phone the day of his suicide when Roy "got out of the vehicle. he was scared". She gets to wake up with her family, meanwhile, where's Conrad? "You just have to do it", Carter wrote in one text.
"In text messages that were later entered as evidence, Carter told Roy he was ready to kill himself and asked him to promise he would go through with it. Prosecutors said during the trial that Carter had told Roy to get back in the truck after he told her he had gotten out and that she had failed to notify anyone that Roy was in danger".
"She has not accepted responsibility", she said. "She was there, sitting on the phone, talking to him while he was taking his last breath".
The prosecution, speaking at the hearing, had said her actions killed Conrad, and she showed no remorse for it. Judge Lawrence Moniz sentenced her on Thursday to 2½-years in jail, but ruled she would be eligible for probation after 15 months and suspended the rest of her sentence until 2022.

Carter was tried as a youthful offender, so the judge had several options for sentencing. Knox spent four years in an Italian prison after she and her then-boyfriend were convicted in the murder of a fellow exchange student with whom she lived.
"I believe she should be kept far away from society", Bozzi wrote. "Take away the spotlight that she so desperately craves".
Martin Healy, chief legal counsel for the Massachusetts Bar Association, said Carter sealed her own fate "through the use of her own words", according to The Boston Globe. I don't believe so.
"I was just sick to my stomach [over] the fact that she can be free, and my cousin, he's not here", Makenna O'Donnell said in an exclusive interview Friday on ABC News' Good Morning America. "There was light at the end of the tunnel but she snuffed it out". "And there should not be any sentence handed down against Ms. Carter for involuntary manslaughter because her conviction for that crime is improper".
David Carter wrote in a letter obtained by the Herald, "I pray to God you will take into consideration that Michelle was a troubled, vulnerable teenager in an extremely hard situation and made a tragic mistake".
