Dharun Ravi Found GUILTY in Death of Rutgers Roommate Tyler Clementi
Ravi, 20, was convicted of invasion of privacy, bias intimidation, witness tampering, and hindering arrest, stemming from his role in activating a webcam to peek at Clementi’s date with a man on Sept. 19, 2010. Ravi was also accused of encouraging others to spy during a second date, on Sept. 21, 2010, and intimidating Clementi for being gay.
Ravi now faces ten years in prison followed by deportation to India, as the U.S. deports most criminal felons with international citizenship.
Ravi was found not guilty of several subcharges within the 15 counts of bias intimidation, attempted invasion of privacy, and attempted bias intimidation he stood accused of.
Ravi’s defense no infamously argued that the 20-year-old wasn’t anti-gay, but rather just an immature jerk. He’ll spend the next decade growing up – behind bars.
Such a tremendous waste of life, both Ravi’s and Tyler Clementi, the gay roommate Ravi drove to suicide with his cyber-harassment.
