    1. "(CBS/AP) NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. - Former Rutgers student Dharun Ravi will be sentenced today in a New Jersey court for using a webcam to spy on his roommate kissing another man. A judge will decide whether Ravi will be sent to jail for the spying of 18-year-old Tyler Clementi in the days that lead up to his suicide in September 2010.
    Ravi, 20, was convicted in March of 15 criminal counts, including two counts of bias intimidation that could be punishable by up to 10 years in state prison."

    I don't recall any other webcam case becoming the cause célèbre that this one did....
    ....it seems that the resultant suicide was the real crux.

    Which leads to....

    2. "Mary may have hanged herself to make a statement that her death was no accident, a relationship expert and family therapist tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively.
    While Mary Kennedy suffered from depression, and alcohol and drug abuse up until her death on May 16, her decision to commit suicide by hanging means she wanted to make sure there was no doubt she would die, Dr. Phil Dembo, relationship expert and family therapist tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively."

    So...the question is, should Robert F.Kennedy, jr. be subject to the same penalty as Dharun Ravi?

    Mary R. Kennedy began her affair with RFK, Jr. while has married, she was six months pregnant when they married. He is a cad, no question, but she got what she ordered.

    The Kennedys rose so high, and fell so low.
