Ravi Apologizes for ‘Wrong Choices’

Dharun Ravi will begin serving his 30-day jail term on Thursday. The former Rutgers University student was convicted of using a webcam to spy on Tyler Clementi, his roommate at the New Jersey school, during a sexual encounter with another man. Clementi killed himself days after the incident. Ravi may end up serving as little as 20 days. In a statement, Ravi offered his first apology for the turn of events. “My behavior and actions, which at no time were motivated by hate, bigotry, prejudice, or desire to hurt, humiliate or embarrass anyone, were nonetheless the wrong choices and decisions. I apologize to everyone affected by those choices,” he said.
