Dharun Ravi Released from Jail After 20 Days of 30-Day Sentence

Dharun Ravi has been released from jail, the AP reports:

RaviDharun Ravi, 20, reported to the Middlesex County jail on May 31, though he could have remained free while his case is appealed.

A judge sentenced him to 30 days in jail — far less than the 10-year prison sentence he could have given him. He still faces three years of probation, plus more than $11,000 in fines and assessments, 300 hours of community service, and counseling. Like other county jail inmates, Ravi automatically was given five days off for good behavior and five for working. Jail officials say he has not done anything to have those credits taken away.

Federal immigration authorities said Monday that Ravi will not be deported to his native India. He lived there until he was 5 years old and remains a citizen, though he is in the United States legally.

Ravi's attorneys filed papers on June 4 to appeal his conviction.

  1. Based on his statements and actions, my guess is that he is not going to change or become a better person anytime soon. Hopefully, he has the sense to keep a low profile. Nevertheless, when he tries to get a job, it will go against him if the recruiter recognizes him or his name. More than likely, a friend of his parents will hire him.

  2. So this is how American justice works- what was the point of even having a trial?!

  3. They should deport him. Why would this degenerate be allowed to stay here and go to our universities after what he's done? He's not a citizen and he's a felon.

  4. He has NO remorse for what he has done.

    He feels ENTITLED and said he's owed back the time he had to endure for "not having done anything to Tyler"

    and he is EVIL. Pure EVIL.

    He needs to be deported...and deported fast. Him being in this country is EVERYTHING that is wrong with this country.

  5. I wish him nothing but the worst evil karma. He deserves nothing but misery.
