ORADELL, N.J. (AP) -- The parents of the two young men at the center of New Jersey's highest-profile hate crime case have been appearing in public in the days before the sentencing.
Dharun Ravi is to be sentenced Monday for 15 criminal counts, including bias intimidation. He was convicted in March of using a webcam to see his Rutgers roommate Tyler Clementi kiss another man. Clementi committed suicide days after the spying.
Ravi could get up to 10 years in prison.
His parents attended a rally last week at the State House in Trenton to call for no jail time.
Clementi's parents spoke briefly on a panel last week after a Bergen County community theater production of a play about Matthew Shepard, a gay Wyoming college student who was killed in 1998.
