NEW BRUNSWICK - A lawyer for Dharun Ravi filed additional paperwork today in the bid for a new trial.

The former Rutgers student was found guilty of 15 criminal counts, including invasion of privacy and bias intimidation against his roommate. Tyler Clementi committed suicide by jumping off the George Washington Bridge days after the incident in September 2010. Ravi was not charged in his roommate's death.

Attorney Steve Altman submitted paperwork in support of the motion for a new trial which was filed on March 22.

The motion for a new trial will be heard the same day as sentencing. Ravi is scheduled to be sentenced on May 21 and is facing 10 years behind bars.
