NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) - The former Rutgers student convicted in the webcam spying case is getting support from some bias-crime victims.

A New Jersey judge has received more than 100 letters supporting Dharun Ravi, many of which have come from victims of bias incidents.

Ravi received a 30-day sentence after being convicted of spying on his roommate, Tyler Clementi, while Clementi was with another man. A few days later, Clementi committed suicide.

Many of the support letters said that it would be unjust to send Ravi to jail.

Do you agree that it’s unjust to send Ravi to jail? Or did the judge get it right? Sound off with your thoughts and comments below…
