NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. - The first time she met with police, Molly Wei realized that having briefly viewed a live Web stream of a fellow dorm resident kissing another man was a serious problem, the former Rutgers University student testified Tuesday in the trial of a classmate. By the time her meeting with investigators was over, she was so rattled, she said, that she had her parents take her home to Princeton Junction, a half-hour away. "At the end of the conversation, the police officers told me that Tyler was missing and that he had possibly committed suicide," she said, showing emotion that she hadn't when she testified Monday.

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. - A key prosecution witness in the trial of a former Rutgers University student accused of watching his roommate's intimate encounter via webcam testified Monday that she agreed to keep it a secret because it was shocking to see the images - but that it wasn't under wraps for long. "First of all, it was shocking. It felt wrong. We didn't expect to see that. . . . It was like we shouldn't have seen it," Molly Wei told jurors. "We didn't want people to know what had happened.

TRENTON - A former Rutgers University freshman who prosecutors said used a webcam to spy on his roommate's same-sex encounter was charged yesterday with a hate crime and accused of deleting tweets and texts to cover up his tracks. Dharun Ravi, 19, was indicted in Middlesex County on 15 counts, including bias intimidation and invasion of privacy, in events that predated the suicide of Tyler Clementi, 18, whose death started a national conversation on the perils of bullying. Ravi had already faced invasion-of-privacy charges along with another Rutgers student, Molly Wei. It took prosecutors months to present their case to a grand jury, alleging that Ravi targeted Clementi because of his sexual orientation and tried to broadcast the encounter online to intimidate his roommate.

Lawyers defending a former Rutgers University student accused of spying on his roommate's sexual encounter with another man say that prosecutors are withholding evidence that could help clear their client. Dharun Ravi, 19, of Plainsboro, is charged with bias intimidation and invasion of privacy for using a webcam to watch his roommate, Tyler Clementi, in a romantic liaison with another man in their dorm room last September. Ravi watched the encounter from a computer in another student's room and told his followers on Twitter that his roommate was "making out with a dude.

College prank or harassment? The indictment of a former Rutgers University student accused of a criminal act that led to his roommate's suicide should lead to an answer to that question. But it won't return to life Tyler Clementi, the 18-year-old who on Sept. 19 plunged to his death from the George Washington Bridge, apparently despondent because a webcam was used to spy on him during a homosexual encounter. A Middlesex County grand jury on Wednesday returned a 15-count indictment against Dharun Ravi, 19, of Plainsboro, accusing him of bias intimidation and other charges.

A former Rutgers University student accused of watching a surreptitious webcast of a classmate's same-sex liaison is seeking to avoid a criminal record. The classmate later committed suicide. Molly Wei, a 19-year-old from West Windsor, N.J., applied to enter a pretrial intervention program last month. If she's accepted into the program, a judge could set conditions, such as staying out of legal trouble, doing community service, and maintaining a job or attending school. If she meets those conditions for a specified time period - it could be up to three years, though one year is the usual period - the charges would be dropped.
