NEW BRUNSWICK - Lawyers for two former Rutgers University freshmen accused of webcasting a classmate having sex with another man are disputing allegations against them.
Dharun Ravi and Molly Wei were charged with invasion of privacy after Ravi allegedly used a webcam on Sept. 19 to capture his roommate, Tyler Clementi, having a gay sexual encounter. Clementi later jumped to his death off the George Washington Bridge.
But Steven Altman and Rubin Sinins, who represent Ravi and Wei respectively, told The Star-Ledger that the webcam stream was only viewed on a single computer and did not show the men having sex.
Ravi and Wei recently withdrew from Rutgers, and prosecutors are considering whether to charge them with a hate crime.
