Dharun Rhavi’s Out of Jail – Deport Him? [POLL]
Do you feel that Dharun Ravi should be deported to his native India after having served time in jail on, among other things, being convicted of bias intimidation?
Well, now that Dharun Ravi’s out of jail and resumes what’s left of his life…(I know, you’re shedding major tears for him, aren’t you?)…perhaps now we can lay to rest whether or not enough time was served by the convicted “bias intimidator.”
Or can we?
Apparently not, as the prosecutor’s office is appealing the sentence that Judge Berman handed down.
No…they want Ravi to serve more time.
Bitter Jones? A little bit?…little bit?
More time in jail for the crime of having intimidated Tyler Clementi by using a webcam to spy on Clementi’s intimate encounter with an older man. You know the story, but what does more time in jail serve to do?
Certainly it won’t bring back Tyler Clementi!
Ravi faced up to 10 years in prison on the second-degree bias counts, but Superior Court Judge Glenn Berman sentenced him to 30 days in the county jail, three years probation and 300 hours of community service.
The Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office filed an appeal of Berman’s sentence days after he delivered it, while Ravi’s attorney filed an appeal of his client’s convictions last week.
Both appeals could take upwards of two years before a three-judge panel acts.
Federal immigration authorities said Monday they will not move to deport Ravi, who was born in India.
Wouldn’t that be “in the interest of serving justice!” No? Deportation. Personally, I think not.
But then again, you, as a nocturnal member of the Rossi Posse may see things differently!
