Former Rutgers student Dharun Ravi is expected to be released from jail next week after serving 20 days of his 30 day sentence for spying on his roommate Tyler Clementi’s gay tryst. Clementi committed suicide days later.
Ravi has been released from the Middlesex County Jail, jail warden Edmond Cicchi told the Associated Press.
Ravi, 20, began his 30-day sentence with five days of credit for good behavior and five days of credit for working, according to the AP.
Judge Glenn Berman also sentenced Ravi to three years probation, ordered to complete 300 hours of community service and attend counseling programs for cyber-bullying and alternative lifestyles.
He must also pay a $10,000 assessment to the probation department in increments of $300 per month beginning Aug. 1. The money will go to groups that support victims of bias crimes. The judge recommended that Ravi, who was born in India and is here on a green card, not be deported.
