According to NJ.com, Dharun Ravi, an Indian citizen living in New Jersey was sentenced to 30 days in jail starting May 31, 2012 by the Middlesex county courthouse in the NJ vs Dharun Ravi case.
Judge Glenn Berman in his statement pointed out that he hasn’t heard Dharun Ravi apologize. “I heard this jury say guilty 288 times: 24 questions, 12 jurors, that’s the multiplication,” Berman said. “And I haven’t heard you apologize once.” Berman also added “Down the road you can expunge this judgement, You cannot expunge the conduct or the pain you caused.”
The Judge said he will recommend that Ravi not be deported.
Ravi will have a three year probation sentence. He will also have to complete 300 hours of community services, and attend a counseling program relative to cyber bullying and alternate lifestyles. He will also have to pay $10,000 to the probation department. The sum will be allotted to a facility dedicated to victims of bias crimes.
Both sides will appeal, the lawyers said today.
On March 16, Dharun Ravi was convicted on all 15 counts against him, including counts of bias intimidation and invasion of privacy in the Rutgers webcam spying trial involving his roommate Tyler Clementi, an 18-year-old freshman.
