Former Rutgers Student Found Guilty In Webcam Spying Trial
Former Rutgers University student Dharun Ravi has been found guilty in the roommate webcam spying trial.
According to ABC News, “Ravi, 20, was convicted of invasion of privacy, bias intimidation, witness tampering, and hindering arrest”.
Ravi set up a webcam in September 2010 to spy on his roommate Tyler Clementi, who was on a date with another man. He also encouraged his Twitter followers to spy on Clementi, who later committed suicide. Ravi is not charged in connection with Clementi’s death.
While not found guilty of all counts he was charged with, he could still face 5 to 10 years in prison, and could be deported to his native India for the crimes.
