Do you agree with Dharun Ravi's sentence? The former Rutgers University student was sentenced Monday to pay a $10,000 fine and serve a 30-day jail sentence after he was convicted in March of bias intimidation, invasion of privacy and witness tampering. The charges stem from September 2010, when Ravi spied on former Rutgers University roommate Tyler Clementi via webcam as Clementi was in their shared dorm room being intimate with a man identified only as "M.B."
