NJ grand jury hands down 15-count indictment in Clementi death

The AP reported The indictment charges Ravi with bias intimidation, invasion of privacy, witness and evidence tampering, and other charges stemming from the suicide of 18-year-old Tyler Clementi in September.

Of the evidence counts, the AP reported Ravi deleted a Twitter post letting others know how they could view a second encounter involving Clementi and replaced it with a false tweet; deleted text messages sent and received by witnesses; and gave false information to police — all actions intended to mislead investigators.

One can only wait to see similar manipulations of electronic evidence in the prior art world of patent law.
