Michelle Huang told jurors Monday that Dharun Ravi told her about it on Sept. 21, 2010, the same day he’s accused of attempting to spy on his roommate.

 

She testified that he told her two days later that the viewing party comment was a joke.

But by then, his roommate Tyler Clementi had killed himself by jumping off the George Washington Bridge.

Ravi faces 15 counts, including invasion of privacy and bias intimidation, a hate crime punishable by up to 10 years in prison. He isn’t charged in Clementi’s death.

DETECTIVE SAYS WEBCAM WAS POINTED AT STUDENT’S BED

A former Rutgers University police detective says he found a student’s webcam pointed directly at the
bed of the roommate he’s accused of spying on.

Detective Douglas Rager testified Monday in the trial of former student Dharun Ravi.

Ravi is charged with 15 criminal counts, including invasion of privacy and bias intimidation. He’s accused of using the webcam to spy on roommate Tyler Clementi’s intimate encounter with another man.

Clementi, jumped to his death from the George Washington Bridge in September 2010. The death came days after the intimate encounter.

Rager says he noticed the camera was pointed toward Clementi’s bed when he went to the room to collect evidence after Clementi’s suicide.
