Rutgers’ spycam student convicted; invaded privacy, tampered with tweets

1 Viewed Admin 0 respond


Twitchy told you last week about developments in the tragic Tyler Clementi suicide case at Rutgers University. Clementi had monitored roommate Dharun Ravi’s Twitter account, which Ravi used to update friends about his camera spying activities.

Today, Ravi was convicted on charges of invasion of privacy, bias intimidation, and “seven counts of witness tampering and hindering apprehension.” The verdict was mixed. While he escaped conviction on the most serious bias charges, he was found guilty of multiple counts of bias-related privacy invasions and more.

Reporters who have been following the Rutgers trial tell me nobody expected the bias charge to hold against Ravi. This was a shocker
