Dharun Ravi's Sentence

So finally, Dharun Ravi - found guilty on all charges in the case of spying on his dorm roommate Tyler Clementi who then ended his life - got his sentence. A month of prison, 3 years of probation, 300 hours of community service, no deportation and a $10 000 fine. I was among the people who didn't want him to get the book thrown in his face, but even so this sentence seems insultingly gentle. I would likely not give him more than 6 months of jail time, but the fine and community hours are laughable.

What do you think?
