Rutgers Student Sentenced In Webcam Spying Case

John O'Boyle, The Star-Ledger

New Brunswick, NJ (WIBX) – Judge Glenn Berman has sentenced convicted web spycammer, Dharun Ravi, to spend 30 days in jail.

Despite the educational and community service requirements that have been attached as conditions of Ravi’s probational jail time, some were shocked by the sentence.  Established sentencing guidelines call for up to ten years in prison.  Middlesex County Prosecutors say thay they will appeal the sentence.

Ravi must also serve three years of probation, attend classes, and contribute $10,000 to a state licensed community-based group that helps victims of bias crimes.  Born in India, Ravi has lived in the United States for most of his life and, until the incident, was a student at Rutgers University.

Dharun Ravi was convicted of spying on his gay college roommate, Tyler Clementi.  Clementi, seen kissing another man in the video, committed suicide in 2010 after learning about the video. Judge Berman called Ravi’s spying “cold, calculated, and methodically conceived” and said that his actions showed “colossal insensitivity.”
