Dharun Ravi pleads not guilty in charges from Tyler Clementi’s suicide
- then Rutgers student Tyler Clementi leapt off a bridge last year, killing himself at the realization that his roommate, Dharun Ravi, had secretly recorded him having sex with a man and uploaded it to the internet. His death originated much public attention to the issue of youths bullied for their sexual orientations.
- now Dharun Ravi, 19, has pled not guilty to a court in Middlesex, New Jersey. He’s facing down 15 different charges, including invasion of privacy and evidence tampering, and if convicted could serve ten years in prison. The other student involved in the case, Molly Wei, will avoid jail time by testifying against Ravi. source
