A US student convicted of using a webcam to secretly film his room-mate in a gay encounter is being sentenced.
Dharun Ravi, 20, a former undergraduate at New Jersey’s state university, was convicted in March on two charges of bias intimidation, a hate crime.
Prosecutors are calling for a sentence of up to 10 years in jail.
The case, in which Tyler Clementi killed himself days after he was filmed in a dorm room at Rutgers University, attracted national attention.
A sentence of more than a year would be expected to increase the chance that US officials will try to deport Ravi to India.
Ravi is an Indian citizen, but has lived in New Jersey for most of his life.
The case prompted comment from President Barack Obama, and anti-bullying measures.
Ravi was found guilty of 15 counts, including invasion of privacy, but was cleared on parts of the bias intimidation charges.
