Dharun Ravi apologised for his actions

Dharun Ravi, the former Rutgers student convicted of using a webcam to spy on his gay roommate, has apologised for his actions in a hearing at the Middlesex County Courthouse in New Brunswick, where he appeared to request he start his 30-day sentence.

CNN reports:

Dharun Ravi, the former Rutgers University student convicted of bias intimidation by use of a hidden webcam, is expected to appear in court on Wednesday, one day after he apologized for his behavior and said he plans to submit to his impending jail sentence.

“I accept responsibility for and regret my thoughtless, insensitive, immature, stupid and childish choices that I made on September 19, 2010, and September 21, 2010,” Ravi said in a written statement on Tuesday.

Ravi was sentenced to serve 30 days in jail, three years of probation and must complete 300 hours of community service aimed at assisting victims of bias crimes. He plans to surrender himself on Thursday.

Ravi also must pay more than $11,000 in restitution.
