May this be a lesson to anyone who encourages bullying.. and this Rhavi dude deserves what is coming to him. Hopefully it will keep some other ignorant kids from doing the same thing to others.

Authorities on Wednesday announced a grand jury has approved bias charges against one of the former Rutgers University students accused of webcam-spying on two fellow male students engaged in a intimate encounter and which may have resulted in the suicide death of one of the participants, Tyler Clementi. 

New Jersey Middlesex County Prosecutor Bruce J. Kaplan said that a grand jury indicted Dharun Ravi, 19, on invasion of privacy and bias charges in a 15-count indictment. The victim in the case, which received national attention and helped heighten awareness of the dangers in bullying, was Ravi's roommate, Tyler Clementi, a violinist in his first freshman weeks at the school. 

Three days after the webcam incident, which occurred in September 2010, Clementi, 18, leapt to his death from the George Washington Bridge. Ravi subsequently withdrew from Rutgers.
