Gay sex: 10-year jail term for Indian student?

Washington: A 19-year-old Indian student in the US, who has been indicted on hate-crime charges for using a webcam to capture a gay encounter involving his roommate, would face fresh trial on February 21.

Dharun Ravi, who has pleaded not guilty, can be deported if he is convicted by the court, media reports said. He can possibly face a 10-year jail term, reports added.

Ravi was arrested in 2010 and charged with invasion of privacy and freed on $25,000 bail after Tyler Clementi, 18, committed suicide by jumping off the George Washington Bridge.

The tragedy was set in motion on September 19 in Davidson Hall on Rutgers' idyllic Piscataway campus, where Clementi and his alleged tormentors, Ravi and his friend Molly Wei, started school a month ago.

Ravi reportedly activated the webcam on his computer and headed to high-school classmate Wei's room down the hall.

Using Skype, the two remotely accessed the feed and saw Clementi engaged in a "sexual encounter" with another man.

It is unclear how many people saw the streaming video, but Ravi bragged about his sordid spying in a Twitter post later that same night.
