    Dharun Ravi received a mixed verdict Friday morning at a New Jersey courthouse. The Rutgers student was found guilty in some facets of all 15 of the charges that he faced, most notably of invasion of privacy for spying with a webcam on Tyler Clementi, his gay roommate who was engaging in what Clementi thought was a private sexual encounter with another man. The charges included four counts of bias intimidation, a hate crime under New Jersey law. The jury, however, found him not guilty on portions of the bias counts, rewarding a split verdict on some of the specific acts within those charges. Ravi could face up to 10 years in prison and possible deportation to his native India. The 20-year-old showed no emotion as the jury read through the 15 charges. Ravi had not been charged in connection with Clementi’s suicide. Sentencing is set for May 21.
