NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) — The former Rutgers student convicted of using a webcam to spy on his gay roommate has reported to a New Jersey jail, and the victim's family is speaking out for the first time about his apology and 30-day jail sentence.
The parents of Tyler Clementi say the apology issued by Dharun Ravi was "no apology at all" but a "public relations piece."
Joseph and Jane Clementi say Ravi had a chance to express remorse during sentencing but instead issued a press release days later. The Clementis also say they are troubled by the judge's decision not to impose jail time for the bias crimes for which Ravi was convicted.
Clementi committed suicide days after Ravi used a webcam to see him kissing another man in September 2010.
