The New York Daily News reports:
An ex-Rutgers student was convicted Friday of bias intimidation and 14 other charges for using a webcam to spy on his gay roommate’s dorm-room trysts with another man.
Dharun Ravi, 20, sat stoically as the jury returned its damning verdict in a case that caused a national furor when the outed roommate jumped to his death from the George Washington Bridge.
The jury deliberated over three days before convicting Ravi, who faces up to 10 years in prison on the hate crime charge and possible deportation to his native India.
Other than a slight shaking of his head, Ravi showed no emotion as the Middlesex County, N.J., jury convicted him of all 15 counts in the September 2010 invasion of fellow freshman Tyler Clementi’s privacy.
His sentencing was set for May 21. Ravi opted not to testify in his own defense.
Clementi, 18, committed suicide three days after the spying incidents. “Jumping off the gw bridge, sorry,” read his final Facebook update.
