Dharun faces 10 years in prison for privacy invasion and hate crime

A US student who secretly filmed his gay roommate and broadcast messages about the film online has been found guilty of hate crime and invasion of privacy.

Tyler Clementi, an 18 year old student at Rutgers University, killed himself in 2010 after his roommate Dharun Ravi twice used his computer’s web cam to record encounters between him and another man. Dharun’s accomplice Molly Wei was not prosecuted in exchange for testifying against Dharun. Dharun now faces 10 years in prison.
