EDISON - A pair of jurors in the Dharun Ravi case spoke to News 12 New Jersey today.
John Bathke spoke with the youngest member of the jury, Kashad Leverett, 20. Leverett is a criminal justice student and told News 12 the jury determined the event was a hate crime because Ravi said in his confession tape that he knew streaming the video of roommate Tyler Clementi kissing another man would embarrass him.
Leverett says the jury gave a lot of weight to text messages including one in which Ravi said he used his webcam to "keep the gays away."
News 12 New Jersey also spoke to a second juror, Lynn Audet, a kindergarten teacher from Perth Amboy. Audet says the fact that Clementi had visited Ravi's twitter account 38 times within a few days convinced her that Clementi was targeted on the 19th, which was the first time that Ravi streamed his roommate's actions over the internet.
Ravi is scheduled to be sentenced on May 21. He faces a maximum sentence of up to 10 years in prison. He also faces the possibility of deportation.
