Following her involuntary manslaughter conviction in the death of Conrad Roy III, Michelle Carter could face up to 20 years in prison. The 20-year-old was convicted Friday after a trial in which prosecutors argued she repeatedly urged her then-boyfriend to kill himself.

It remained unclear what, exactly, the future would hold for Carter after the guilty verdict. Her defense attorney, Joseph Cataldo, said he would be “weighing various options moving forward.” Carter was scheduled to be sentenced August 3.

“There’s a whole host of different options,” he told PEOPLE Monday. “Ranging from jail to probation.”

Cataldo also said he and Carter were unhappy with the outcome of the case.

“This case presented some very novel legal issues,” he said. “And we’re disappointed in the outcome of the verdict.”

The charges against Carter’s stemmed from Roy’s 2014 suicide in which he used a portable generator attached to his truck to kill himself. During the trial, prosecutors cited thousands of text messages between Carter and Roy in which Carter repeatedly urged him to take his own life. At certain points, Carter gave him ideas for how to commit suicide and expressed frustration that he hadn’t done so yet. She also told Carter his family would “get over” his death.

Having waived her right to a jury trial, Carter was convicted by Judge Lawrence Moniz. In rendering his verdict, Moniz said he based his decision based not on the text messages but instead, on the single phone call between Carter and Roy in the minutes leading up to and during his death. During that call, Roy attempted to get out of his truck as it filled with toxic fumes and Carter convinced him to get back inside and finish his suicide.

“She admits, in texts, that she did nothing,” Moniz said. “She did not call the police or Mr. Roy’s family. And finally, she did not issue a simple additional instruction: ‘Get out of the truck.’”

The case brought about plenty of controversy and op-ed pieces regarding the situation, one of the first of its kind to make it to court. Roy’s mother, for her part, said she wanted a law passed in response to prevent this from happening to other families.

“I would give up everything – I would be homeless, sleep in my car for the rest of my life, if I could just get him back,” Lynn Roy told the Daily Mail Wednesday. “I want a law in place that prevents this happening to any other mother and child. The ultimate goal is to have a law passed. It’s not going to bring my son back, but I would be honored if it would help other children.”

Roy’s mother also said she felt Carter didn’t have a conscience but said she did not want to discuss the potential sentencing.

“I don’t want to talk about the outcome,” she said. “I don’t wish pain. I feel bad for her family too.”
