Ex-Rutgers student guilty in Tyler Clementi webcam suicide case

BY GEOFF MULVIHILL, ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. -- A former Rutgers University student accused of using a webcam to spy on his gay roommate's love life was convicted of invasion of privacy and anti-gay intimidation Friday in a case that exploded into the headlines when victim Tyler Clementi threw himself to his death off the George Washington Bridge.

Dharun Ravi, 20, shook his head slightly after hearing guilty verdicts on all 15 counts against him.

He could get up to 10 years in prison, according to legal experts - and could be deported to his native India, even though he has lived legally in the U.S. since he was a little boy - for an act that cast a spotlight on teen suicide and anti-gay bullying and illustrated the Internet's potential for tormenting others.
