Mystery man in Rutgers case wants prison for Ravi
WHIPPANY, N.J. - March 23, 2012 (WPVI) -- The man who was spied on during intimate encounters with a Rutgers freshman who later committed suicide wants the former student convicted in the case to go to prison.
The man has been identified only as M.B. He will draft a statement his lawyer will read when Dharun Ravi is sentenced May 21.
Lawyer Richard Pompelio tells The Record newspaper that his client believes Ravi deserves time behind bars because that's what the law provides.
Ravi faces up to 10 years after jurors convicted the 20-year-old of invasion of privacy and bias intimidation, a hate crime. Tyler Clementi threw himself off a bridge after realizing his encounter with M.B. had been watched via webcam.
Pompelio says his 32-year-old client doesn't hold any malice toward Ravi. But the lawyer believes his client has learned there was a degree of "meanness" in what happened.
