New Brunswick (New Jersey), May 21 (IANS) Indian-American student Dharun Ravi will serve a 30-day jail term beginning May 31.

Sentencing the former Rutgers New Jersey State University student on bias intimidation and invasion of privacy charges, Middlesex County Judge Glenn Berman Monday said he will recommend that Ravi not be deported.

"Down the road you can expunge this judgement," Berman said. "You cannot expunge the conduct or the pain you caused," he said.

Ravi's roommate at Rutgers New Jersey State University, Tyler Clementi, committed suicide in September 2010, several days after Ravi set up his webcam and watched live-streamed images of Clementi kissing another man.
