Melchert-Dinkel, of Faribault, Minnesota, had posed as a suicidal female nurse on the internet to befriend Mr Drybrough, 32, feigning compassion and offering step-by-step instructions on how to kill himself.
Rice County District Judge Thomas Neuville found the 48-year-old guilty in March of aiding the suicides of Mr Drybrough and of 18-year-old Canadian Nadia Kajouji, who died by jumping into a river in 2008.
