Dharun Ravi ought to be shot.
Dharun Ravi—convicted of invasion of privacy, tampering with a witness, and bias intimidation against his roommate Tyler Clementi—finished his jail sentence today and is a free man. He still faces three years probation, 300 hours of community service and more than $11,000 in fines and assessments.
Ravi only served 20 days of his 30-day sentence—he was automatically given five days off for good behavior and another five for working, according to the AP. Immigration officials announced yesterday that Ravi will not be deported to India.
Both sides are appealing the sentencing: Ravi, claiming he is not guilty of bias intimidation, and the D.A.’s office, saying it wasn’t stiff enough.
