Conviction in Minnesota for encouraging suicide

Call Us: 703-383-1100

Here is a recent article about a former nurse convicted and sentenced to nearly a year for having encouraged two people to commit suicide.

It appears that the defendant’s actions were committed electronically, specifically or partly in suicide chat rooms. I am interested to know the extent to which the defense raised the First Amendment in arguing against a conviction.
