(AP) NORTH BRUNSWICK, N.J. - A former Rutgers University student who was convicted of bias for using a webcam to see his roommate and another man kissing was released from jail Tuesday after serving 20 days of a 30-day sentence.

Dharun Ravi, 20, reported to the Middlesex County jail on May 31, though he could have remained free while his case is appealed. His lawyer, Steven Altman, picked him up around 8:30 a.m. Ravi, who was clean-shaven when he entered jail, had a beard when he left.

He did not stop to speak with the media before he rode off in Altman's car.

A judge sentenced him to 30 days in jail far less than the 10-year prison sentence he could have given him. He still faces three years of probation, plus more than $11,000 in fines and assessments, 300 hours of community service, and counseling. Like other county jail inmates, Ravi automatically was given five days off for good behavior and five for working.

2. What will he do now?

Will be continue to be a jerk to innocent people? Or will he show some maturity and try to make amends?

Only time will tell.
