NEW BRUNSWICK - The confident smile Dharun Ravi had on his face throughout much of his trial was gone today as his father helped him toward their car at a nearby parking deck after hearing his guilty verdict.
Ravi previously turned down a plea deal that would have given him probation and community service in the Rutgers University webcam spying case. Now, Ravi faces up to 10 years in prison and deportation to his native India.
The verdict is one that the family of the victim, Tyler Clementi, had been waiting for. The Clementis took no questions and said they'll share their feelings about the verdict in a press release next week.
However, the Clementis said they hope Tyler's death sends a message to other young people to stand up and stop the bullying that drove their son to suicide.
