    Ravi and Clementi were roommates at Rutgers University. The charges against Ravi stemmed from his role in activating a webcam to view Clementi's date with a man in their dorm room on Sept. 19, 2010. Clementi committed suicide by jumping off the George Washington Bridge on Sept. 22, 2010. Here, Ravi arrives for the opening arguments at his trial. (Mel Evans/AP Photo)

    Clementi's case gained national attention after he committed suicide. Ravi was not implicated in the death, but "[i]t's reasonable to assume we would have never heard of Dharun Ravi without the death of Tyler Clementi," said "20/20" anchor Chris Cuomo, who followed the trial closely.

    Judge Glenn Berman listens to the defense summation in Ravi's trial, March 13, 2012. Ravi's lawyer Steven Altman ended his defense by playing the interrogation video in full, apparently hoping Ravi's calm demeanor would convince the jury that his actions had not been malicious.

    Middlesex County First Assistant Prosecutor Julia McClure is seen during a break in the trial on Thursday, March 8, 2012. Throughout the trial, McClure built a case that Ravi spied on Clementi's date because his roommate was gay, and told his friends and Twitter followers to also spy on Clementi, describing Ravi's actions as an anti-gay hate crime.

    Michelle Huang, a high school friend of Ravi's, is sworn in before testifying at Ravi's trial on March 5, 2012. Defense attorney Steven Altman asked Huang to describe text messages she exchanged with Ravi when he learned Clementi had committed suicide, presumably to show Ravi didn't believe he had anything to do with his roommate's death.

    Rutgers police detective Sean Skala testifies. Ravi rejected a plea deal that would have spared him jail time or the threat of deportation in exchange for probation and community service. He reportedly refused because of the bias charge, going to trial on principle. He will likely be deported, as are most felons who aren't citizens. Ravi is Indian.

Some of these people you may not like. Just because you don't like them doesn't mean you have to work against them." (Kathy Johnson/The Courier-News/AP Photo)

    Ravi's attorneys argued he was immature, not anti-gay. The jurors split on whether Ravi targeted Clementi because he was gay, but found that Clementi reasonably believed he was being targeted for being gay, which increased his suffering. <a href="http://abc.go.com/watch/2020/SH559026/VD55185819/2020-323-rutgers-webcam-spying-scandal">CLICK HERE to watch the interview</a> (Mel Evans/AP Photo)
