    Two Rutgers University freshmen have withdrawn from the school after they were accused of webcasting a classmate having sex with a man.

    Attorney Steven Altman says that means Dharun Ravi and Molly Wei will not face university disciplinary hearings.

    Altman, who represents Ravi, told The Home News Tribune of East Brunswick his client plans to attend school somewhere else.

    Wei's attorney, Rubin Sinins, told The Star-Ledger of Newark his client feared for her safety.

    Ravi and Wei were charged with invasion of privacy.

    Authorities said Ravi used a webcam to capture his roommate, Tyler Clementi, having a gay sexual encounter.

    Clementi jumped to his death off the George Washington Bridge days later.

    Prosecutors are considering whether to charge Wei and Ravi with a hate crime.
