Will Dharun Ravi's Sentence Fit the Crime?

Monday, May 21, 2012

The case of Tyler Clementi became national news when the Rutgers University freshman jumped off the George Washington Bridge in September, 2010. Clementi had recently told his family he was gay. Last March, a New Jersey jury convicted Clementi’s roommate, Dharun Ravi, of bias intimidation and invasion of privacy, after Ravi spied on Tyler kissing another man. Today, New Jersey Superior Court Judge Glenn Berman will announce Ravi's sentence, and many are concerned that he might face a punishment that doesn’t fit the crime. Marc Pourier, law professor at Seton Hall University, is particularly concerned that Ravi will face an unfair sentence.

Are Hate Crime Laws Necessary?

Monday, March 19, 2012

As the webcam-spying trial of Rutgers student Dharun Ravi comes to an end, some people have questioned whether hate crime laws are necessary at all. On the one hand, they dole out harsher punishments for crimes motivated by discrimination and bigotry. On the other, is the same crime worse depending on the identity of the victim? In the Rutgers case, the jury must decide if Ravi's actions constituted a hate crime or just a tasteless prank.
