Lawyers for Dharun Ravi are appealing his conviction for bullying and spying on Tyler Clementi, his freshman roommate at Rutgers University. Ravi, 20, is serving a 30-day sentence in a New Jersey jail on a 15-count conviction for using a computer webcam to watch Clementi and another man kiss in September 2010. Clementi, 18, committed suicide soon after he learned that Ravi wrote on Twitter about seeing him. Although Ravi surrendered to authorities on May 31, because he said he wanted to close this chapter of his life, his defense team quietly filed the notice of appeal on June 4.
