    New Jersey prosecutors are expected to explain why they believe a former Rutgers University student should be sent to prison for using a webcam to spy on his roommate kissing another man.

    Dharun Ravi was convicted in March of bias intimidation, invasion of privacy and other charges.

    His roommate, Tyler Clementi, committed suicide days after the viewing in September 2010.

    Last week, Ravi asked a judge to overturn the jury's verdict — or at least for punishment that doesn't involve prison.

    Saying how emotionally difficult it was to watch the trial of the former Rutgers student found guilty of spying on their son, Tyler Clementi's father, mother and brother pledged to continue to fight bias through the foundation they set up in his memory. They also thanked the judge, prosecutors and victims' advocates. (Published Monday, Mar 19, 2012)

    Ravi is scheduled to be sentenced later this month and could get up to 10 years in prison.
