Deportation a risk in Rutgers webcam trial

Deportation could be a risk for ex-student in Rutgers webcam spying trial By The Associated Press

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) ' A jury is expected to resume deliberations Thursday in the hate-crime trial of a former Rutgers University student accused of webcam spying against his roommate and another man.

They may have more than just the defendant's criminal fate on their hands. If 20-year-old Dharun Ravi (dah-ROON' RAH'-vee) is convicted of the most serious charges he could be deported back to his native India.

Prosecutors last year offered Ravi a plea bargain that called for no prison time and help avoiding deportation.

But immigration law expert Michael Wildes says the young man's legal team made a decision "to roll the dice."

The case got wide attention when the roommate, Tyler Clementi, committed suicide.
