A former Rutgers University student Dharun Ravi, who was convicted of hate crimes for using a webcam to view his roommate and another man kissing days before the roommate killed himself, will go to jail for 30 days.
Judge Glenn Berman pronounced the sentence against the 20 year old former Rutgers University student for bias intimidation and invasion of privacy charges for the 2010 episode involving his roommate Tyler Clementi.
Ravi had faced a maximum of 10 years behind bars for his conviction.
Berman called Ravi’s behavior “cold, calculated and methodically conceived.” He said he did not believe Ravi hated roommate Tyler Clementi, but believed he acted “out of colossal insensitivity.”
“I haven’t heard you apologise once,” Berman told Ravi, who made no statement.
Ravi will begin his sentence on May 31. He will also serve three years probation, ABC News reported.
