Rutgers Webcam Voyeur Indicted on 15 Counts

A grand jury handed down a 15-count indictment today for Dharun Ravi, the former Rutgers student accused of livestreaming 18-year-old roommate Tyler Clementi's gay liaisons on the internet. The event preceded Clementi's suicide.

Ravi faces two counts of invasion of privacy; two counts of attempted invasion of privacy; two counts of second-degree bias crimes; two counts of third-degree bias crimes; three counts each of tampering with evidence, three counts of hindering his own apprehension; and one count of witness tampering. According to the prosecution, Ravi tried to dissuade witnesses from testifying and gave investigators misleading information.

Ravi's alleged co-conspirator, Molly Wei, has also been charged with invasion of privacy, but her case has not yet gone to a grand jury.

Prosecutor Bruce Kaplan referred to Ravi's victims as T.C. and M.B. The identity of Tyler's make-out partner has never been revealed. [Star-Ledger]
