Dharun Ravi, Molly Wei Say They Didn't Put Tyler Clementi Video On Internet

Posted: Updated:

Lawyers for the Rutgers students accused of taping their peer's sexual encounter say that no one else saw the footage besides the two -- and that they only saw it for a matter of seconds.

Dharun Ravi and Molly Wei, both 18, only saw Ravi's roommate Tyler Clementi hug and kiss another man, lawyers say. Clementi jumped to his death from the George Washington Bridge in September. Ravi and Wei have been charged with invasion of privacy for allegedly taping his encounter with a man and broadcasting it on the internet.

The Newark Star-Ledger has more:

For more than a month, investigators, school officials and the arrested students have declined to publicly discuss exactly what was viewed on the internet feed. But Ravi's and Wei's attorneys and friends recently agreed to give some details in an attempt to dispel the widespread image of the pair as peeping toms who broadcast a fellow teen having sex on the internet.

"When the forensic evidence from all the seized computers is revealed, the truth will come out," said Steve Altman, Ravi's attorney. "Nothing was transmitted beyond one computer and what was seen was only viewed for a matter of seconds."

Ravi and Wei both withdrew from Rutgers last week.
