NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) -- A former Rutgers University student convicted of using a webcam to spy on his male roommate kissing another man days before the roommate killed himself has publicly apologized for the first time.
Dharun Ravi (DAHR'-uhn RAH'-vee) says he's sorry for what he calls his "thoughtless, insensitive, immature, stupid and childish choices."
Ravi's roommate, Tyler Clementi, threw himself from New York City's George Washington Bridge in 2010.
Ravi was sentenced in March to 30 days in jail. He said Tuesday he'll start serving his term on Thursday in New Brunswick.
The sentencing judge had criticized Ravi for a lack of remorse and told him: "I haven't heard you apologize once."
Prosecutors say Ravi's sentence is too lenient.
