A freshman of Rutgers University, Tyler Clementi, committed suicide by jumping off of a bridge on September 22.
"Roommate asked for the room till midnight. I went into molly's room and turned on my webcam. I saw him making out with a dude. Yay," Dharun Ravi, Clementi's roommate, tweeted.
Ravi allegedly placed the webcam in his room and streamed live video of the two on the Internet and announced it on various social networking sites, ABC news reports. Clementi then posted a 'suicide note' message on Facebook stating "jumping off the gw bridge sorry," according to CNN.
Dharun Ravi and his friend Molly Wei, both 18, are each being charged with two counts of invasion of privacy for one incident, according to the prosecutor's office. Then two more counts of invasion of privacy were added for another incident just a few days later involving Clementi, the prosecutor's office said.
