Man caught on tape with Clementi could testify in court today

According to the Associated Press, the man who was caught on the webcam with Tyler Clementi, who committed suicide in September 2010, could testify in court for Dharun Ravi’s trial as early as today.

Ravi, Clementi’s roommate, set up a webcam for people to watch Clementi and another man, referred to as M.B., kissing in the dorm room. A few days later Clementi committed suicide by jumping off the George Washington Bridge.

He is currently being charged with “hate crime, invasion of privacy and several counts that accuse him of trying to cover his tracks,” according to the article. He is not being charged with Clementi’s death.

M.B. is said to be “sketchy” looking and around 30 years old, according to witnesses who watched the secret webcam video of him and Clementi kissing.

About Haley Behre

I graduated from Syracuse University in December 2011 with majors in newspaper journalism and women and gender studies. Using these majors, I aspire to become a journalist who writes about human rights issues. I have held internships at the Syracuse New Times, Dash Media PR Firm, Syracuse Post-Standard and the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press. I also had an internship at the Not For Sale Campaign Syracuse chapter, which is a non-profit organization dedicated to eradicating human trafficking. I was born in Seoul, Korea on September 30, 1990 and moved to the United States before I was one year old. When I was 8, my family and I moved to Norwich, England for three years. While I was here I was immersed into a new culture and got to experience many things other children my age do not get to. Over the three years, I visited Ireland, France and the Netherlands several times, and Belgium, Wales and Sweden once. In the winter of 2010, I got an amazing opportunity to visit Kenya for a month. This was by far the single most eye-opening experience of my life thus far. The natural beauty of the landscape and its people do not compare to anything I have seen. I currently intern for the Reporters Committee for the Freedom of the Press in the hopes of getting a full-time job at a newspaper or non-profit after.
