Student Involved In Tyler Clementi Suicide Avoids Jail Time

Molly Wei, the former Rutgers University student accused of using a webcam to document Tyler Clementi's sexual encounter with a male classmate, has been approved for a "pretrial intervention program that will allow her to avoid criminal prosecution":

Under the deal with prosecutors, Wei, 18, of Princeton, N.J., pleaded not guilty Friday to two counts of invasion of privacy, according to the Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office.

As part of the pretrial intervention, Wei must attend counseling in cyberbulling and in dealing with alternative and cultural differences. She must also complete 300 hours of community service and testify against Ravi.

If Wei completes the program without getting into any additional trouble, all charges will be dropped, the prosecutor's office said.


Clementi's roommate, Dharun Ravi, who was also involved in the taping, was indicted a few short weeks ago on 15 charges including bias intimation and invasion of privacy.
