NEW BRUNSWICK - Dharun Ravi is set to face a judge Monday for his sentencing in the Tyler Clementi webcam case.
Ravi faces up to 10 years in prison after his conviction for using a webcam to spy on the sexual encounter of Clementi, his roommate at Rutgers, and another man. Clementi committed suicide soon after the incident.
Ravi took a gamble in the case, rejecting a no-jail plea deal presented to him by the prosecution. In March, the 20-year-old Plainsboro native was convicted of a hate crime and invasion of privacy, among other charges.
Ravi said he turned down the plea deal because his actions were a prank, not a hate crime.
