WOODBURY - The former Rutgers University student who was convicted of hate crimes for using a webcam to spy on his roommate's encounter with another man was sentenced today to 30 days in jail. Dharun Ravi, 20, was convicted in March of bias in spying on his roommate, Tyler Clementi. Clementi plunged to his death from the George Washington Bridge shortly after the spying incident. During the investigation and trial, Ravi attracted the scorn of gay rights activists and anti-bullying advocates across the nation. The judge said today that he wouldn't deport Ravi back to his native India. After his jail term, Ravi will serve probation.
