      People she paid big bucks to make her look like the paragon of virtue are saying that she’s an absolute sweetheart?

      “And… I was paid to say that.”

      C’mon, Molly- you’re 18 not 8… are trying to convince us all that you didn’t know the difference between right & wrong? Or you’re SO passive, that you couldn’t raise your voice when your buddy sets up IN YOUR ROOM (for the second time, no less) and you still don’t object.

      Not buyin’ it, girl.

      Caring, bright future… indeed. People like you are a dime a dozen.

      Once she is done serving her 30 days of unsupervised probation she will have a fine future. She’s rich, and hetty, and will become a cause amongst those who hate us.

      Send her to jail for breaking the invasion of privacy law, but her lawyers are correct that she can’t be held legally responsible for a suicide.

      She participated in the invasion of privacy and an attack on the dignity of a fellow student. Her computer, with her permission was used to mentally abuse a student.

      If she is such a nice person, perhaps she would care to come out and tell us all about how she yelled and tried to prevent what was done…oh thats right…she didn’t.

      Re No 7: whether one likes it or not, a smart lawyer can probably get her off.

      It is not a crime to merely let someone use your computer. Unless there are other witnesses (I presume not since the reports did not mention anyone else in the room beside Ravi and Molly), my guess at Molly’s defense will be that Ravi was in her room and said he needed to use a computer because his roommate wanted the room for a few hours, and she assumed Ravi would use the computer for legitimate purposes.

      Then she’ll claim that she had a lot of reading to do (say, a 100 page reading assignment), was concentrating on that, and really didn’t pay much if any attention to Ravi. If Ravi told here that his roommate was “making out with a dude” and she repeated that to others, she’ll claim that she assumed Ravi had exchanged some text messages with his roommate or was told about his plans, but really didn’t think about how he got that information or even if it was reliable. If she told others that she saw the webcam images, she can say that she was shocked and told Ravi to shut it off and not use her computer for that purpose again (it would be her word against his), but that she didn’t repeat that statement to others to avoid embarrassing Ravi.

      Ravi can claim otherwise, but as a witness he’d have real credibility problems given his behavior, which shows he is not trustworthy. So, there could be a fair chance that a jury would let her off due to reasonable doubt – the lack of credible witnesses. Probably the DA is charging her or considering charging her as a club to get her to testify against Ravi, and will let her off in exchange for cooperating.

      maybe they’ll use her to testify agaisnt him. It’s one way she can save her ass. And claiming that she’s bright only hurts her defense, because she obviously knew right from wrong.

      No. Tyler Clementi was a wonderful, caring, young man with a bright future.

      Molly Wei’s participated, willingly, in violating his privacy, a reckless, cruel, preventable act that could be argued constitutes manslaughter.

      You could say that if some of the press reports turn out to be true, but then you might consider the case of a certain Richard Jewell, who was tried and convicted by the media for a crime he did not commit, leading to a series of lawsuits for libel.

      Read about it at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Jewell for a quick overview. He died at an early age due to a series of medical problems (“severe heart disease, kidney disease, diabetes, and obesity”). Stress from the false accusations may have been a contributing factor – it can contribute to obesity as the victim eats “comfort food” to feel better, which exacerbates the other problems.

      There’s a good reason to withhold judgment regarding Molly Wei – the press has screwed up before. It doesn’t hurt to wait to see what the DA does and (if she is charged) what a jury decides.

      I agree with B that we should withhold judgment on Molly. However, blaming Richard Jewel’s death (which came many years later) on the fact that people thought he was a bomber for about a week is pretty inane.

      I think both of them should have to register as a sex offender for the rest of their lives.

      If I got catch peeping into someone’s window, I would have to I would end up on the sex offender’s list…so should them.

      The post you are referring to either was from a different thread or was somehow deleted. In any case, you don’t know the facts. The press harassment went on for a lot longer than a week in Jewel’s case and probably caused a lot of stress, which could have contributed to his medical problems – I didn’t say it was the sole cause or even the primary cause.

      I’ll refer you to a mid-1997 article http://select.nytimes.com/gst/abstract.html?res=F10616FD3C5E0C758EDDAE0894DF494D81&ref=richard_jewell which describes what he went through: “ATLANTA, July 25— He feels the stares of strangers in restaurants, knowing they still wonder if he is the one. He has come to distrust almost everyone, save his mother and his lawyers. That will happen, he says, when the only woman you have dated in a year sells her story to a magazine. He has grown accustomed to the confrontations, as on the night at a Braves game when a man screamed at him in the parking lot, ”What are you going to do, blow up the new stadium?”” And that is just for starters.

      The government announced he was not a suspect a few months after the incident. The press reported that, but naturally it got a tiny fraction of the coverage as the accusations. It caused some long-term psychological damage to him.
