Rutgers Webcam Spying Trial
NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) - A Rutgers University student who says she saw a webcast of a classmate's intimate encounter with another man says one of the men had his shirt off but nothing more graphic than kissing
Rutgers student Cassandra Cicco testified Friday in the trial of Dharun Ravi, a former Rutgers student accused of invasion of privacy and bias intimidation.
The case sparked a national conversation about bullying of young gays after Ravi's roommate, Tyler Clementi, committed suicide days after the webcast in September 2010.
Cicco says Ravi told her he wanted to use his webcam to see if his roommate was gay. But she said he didn't seem to have a problem with homosexuality.
To convict Ravi of bias intimidation, prosecutors would need to show he acted because he was anti-gay.
