Former Rutgers University student Dharun Ravi was convicted on 15 counts of charges including invasion of privacy, bias intimidation and hate crimes regarding the suicide of Tyler Clementi in his suicide jump from the George Washington bridge, after Ravi outed him kissing a man on a hidden camera back in 2010. Accordingo the the NY Daily News:
The jury deliberated over three days before convicting Ravi, who faces up to 10 years in prison on the hate crime charge and possible deportation to his native India.
Other than a slight shaking of his head, Ravi showed no emotion as the Middlesex County, N.J., jury convicted him of all 15 counts in the September 2010 invasion of fellow freshman Tyler Clementi’s privacy.
His sentencing was set for May 21. Ravi opted not to testify in his own defense.
A dazed Ravi, of Plainsboro, N.J., was whisked from the courtroom with his mother and father. He climbed into a waiting vehicle and left shortly after the verdict.
