NEW BRUNSWICK - The guilty verdict in the Dharun Ravi webcam spying trial has sent shockwaves through Rutgers University's New Brunswick campus.
A jury ruled today that Ravi was motivated by bias against gays when he used a webcam to spy on an intimate encounter between his Rutgers roommate, Tyler Clementi, and a male companion. The video was streamed over the Internet, a jury found, and days later, Clementi committed suicide. Both Ravi and Clementi were in their freshman year at Rutgers.
Many students News 12 New Jersey spoke with today say they support the jury's verdict and believe Ravi is guilty of the charges of bias intimidation and invasion of privacy.
Some Rutgers students say the verdict is also making them think harder about their actions and the potential consequences.
