(Newser) – After Tyler Clementi killed himself, his roommate apparently sent a text saying that "he was quiet all the time and had no friends, so I guess it makes sense." A former classmate of roommate Dharun Ravi testified about the text in the Clementi trial today, and added that Ravi had invited her to a "viewing party" to spy on Clementi having sex, reports MyCentralJersey.com. But the witness, Michelle Huang, said she declined to remotely activate the video chat: "I had no interest in viewing. I didn't do it." Ravi faces up to 5 years on charges including invasion of privacy and bias intimidation as a hate crime. Clementi jumped off a bridge days after Ravi watched him via webcam having a gay encounter.
