The law deems 30 days and a couple thousand in fines appropriate for driving a person to commit suicide. A conviction on this charge ("biased crimes") requires that Tyler Clementi felt threatened, but Ravi did not need to intend to threaten him. This is a ridiculous law that likely wouldn't survive a determined Supreme Court challenge.

I've been invited to Queen's Park to speak to The Standing Committee on Social Policy regarding the "Accepting Schools Act" (Bill 13), and the "Anti-Bullying Act" (Bill 14). I'll be presenting my thoughts on Monday, May 14th at 7:30 PM.
Regular readers will be aware that I'm no fan of the government's Bill 13, because of what it doesn't contain - accountability and reporting. If the current government wants to do something that will actually help solve the bullying problem in our schools, they must be forced to understand that their Bill 13 fails to do so.
