The Middlesex County prosecutor’s office said Mr. Clementi’s roommate, Dharun Ravi, 18, of Plainsboro, N.J., and another classmate, Molly Wei, 18, of Princeton Junction, N.J., had each been charged with two counts of invasion of privacy for using “the camera to view and transmit a live image” of Mr. Clementi. The most serious charges carry a maximum sentence of five years.
Mr. Ravi was charged with two additional counts of invasion of privacy for trying a similar live feed on the Internet on Sept. 21, the day before the suicide. A spokesman for the prosecutor’s office, James O’Neill, said the investigation was continuing, but he declined to “speculate on additional charges.”

I wonder if the perps would have targeted this man had he been heterosexual? Would students have been as interested in watching that encounter? Would the target student have been as humiliated; responded in the same fashion? Would people feel differently about the entire incident? Is this a hate crime? Were any other couples filmed in similar situations?
Sad situation, all around.
