Rutgers Trial

Dharun Ravi: ‘I Wasn’t Biased’

The Newark Star-Ledger has scored the first interview with Dharun Ravi, the Rutgers student who was convicted of a biased intimidation, a hate crime last week. Ravi was convicted on 15 counts after using his web cam to spy on his roommate, Tyler Clementi, during a sexual encounter in the fall of 2010. “I wasn’t biased," Ravi told the paper. "I didn’t act out of hate and I wasn’t uncomfortable with Tyler being gay." Clementi committed suicide after he learned that Ravi had used a web cam to spy on his Clementi’s encounter.
