Ex-student in Rutgers webcam spy case gets 30-day jail sentence
Dharun Ravi, the former Rutgers University student who used a webcam to spy on a roommate who later committed suicide, has been sentenced to 30 days in jail.
A judge gave 20-year-old Ravi a 30-day jail term and then probation on Monday after calling Ravi’s actions “cold, calculated and methodically conceived.”
Ravi was convicted in March of bias intimidation for using a webcam to stream a romantic encounter between his roommate, 18-year-old Tyler Clementi, and another man on the Internet. Clementi jumped to his death from the George Washington Bridge in September 2010 after learning of the webcam.
