Dharun Ravi appeared in state court to formally put on the record his decision to report to jail Thursday to begin serving his 30-day jail sentence and waive his right not to be punished twice for the same crime.
The case of Dharun Ravi, a former Rutgers University student accused of using a webcam to spy on his roommate’s encounter with another man, is now in the hands of the jury.
Resident advisor Raahi Grover said Wednesday that Tyler Clementi seemed uncomfortable when he came to see him about something that happened hours before.
Prosecutors say Dharun Ravi secretly set up a webcam in the dorm room he shared with Tyler Clementi and recorded Clementi’s intimate moments with another man.
In her opening statements Friday morning, Assistant Prosecutor Julia McClure said Dharun Ravi’s invasion of privacy of his roommate was deliberate and criminal.
