The case of a Rutgers University student jumping off the George Washington Bridge last week is being reviewed by the New Jersey's attorney general's office.
The body of freshman Tyler Clementi, 18, was found Thursday in the Hudson River after he jumped off of the George Washington Bridge, authorities said. Clementi committed suicide after his roommate broadcast him having an intimate relationship with another man on the internet.
Clementi's roommate, Dharun Ravi, and Ravi's friend, Molly Wei, who set up a webcam and streamed the video live, were charged with two counts of invasion of privacy, the LA Times reported.
The Middlesex County prosecutor, Bruce J. Kaplan, said his office was considering whether to press hate-crime charges or not, based on Clementi's alleged sexual orientation.
According to the New York Times, New Jersey has one of the toughest state laws on hate crimes. The crime doesn't even have to be violent.
No additional charges have been made and a court date has not been set.
