Michelle Carter, the 20-year-old woman who convinced her boyfriend Conrad Roy to commit suicide over text, will find out the fate of her future very soon.
On Thursday, Bristol County Juvenile Court Judge Lawrence Moniz will hear directly from Carter and others affected by the death of Roy before he decides her sentence.
Carter faces up to 20 years in prison, but several legal experts believe a lengthy sentence is unlikely.
"She will be given little, if any, jail time, in my view," said CNN legal analyst Joey Jackson. "The crime was horrific, but based upon her youth, I believe the judge's sentence will focus more on rehabilitation than on punishment. Though some punishment would be appropriate -- and I think the judge also needs to deter copy cats."
Jackson also added that the judge allowed Carter to remain free on bail after her conviction, which is a "sign of his thinking."
