First more on the legal expenses aspects of this -- remove its very keep -- with -- former -- -- Fox News legal analyst.
Arthur -- dollar I'm not altogether sure exactly what happened it sounds like.
This guy in this girl set up a camera in some in some guys room maybe the guy's roommate right and in the guy's roommate has some sort of sexual act.
Maybe he was alone sounds like probably can't be sure who we think so.
And then he realizes.
Holy heck I've just broadcast whatever -- is doing on the Internet and in the local reports indicating mug on the G -- -- -- himself.
And when you're eighteen years old shepherd and you just start college look at what time we're talking about right now you know we -- in school first four weeks six weeks.
And this is how you start your college career.
In his world at the worst thing that could possibly happen right I mean even if he's doing something all by himself it's the worst thing -- could possibly happen to him.
You can't judge the kids were trespassing because apparently it's the other roommates -- and he's allowed to be there.
But New Jersey does have invasion of privacy rules -- they punishable by up to five years in prison.
And these 218 year old male and the female who perpetrated this crime.
Instead of starting a wonderful college career are -- going to be facing jail time and it -- tragedy especially of this young man killed.
-- because this.
-- a very tragic case what this is that was a college prank gone wrong went wrong tragically with this.
Possible suicide the GW bridge however.
Once you get past the headlines and you do very thorough investigation -- -- is required in every case you're going to see other sets of facts and specifically.
This statute that they've charged is -- with requires.
Sexual contact or penetration.
And if you don't have -- on the video or if the video wasn't upload -- to the live chat.
And you don't have the third degree invasion of privacy and you don't have the five right would you -- talked to me he's still -- the fourth degree which carries a year or two a year and a half.
OK and you know what maybe some people say that these eighteen year old because there was a lack of intent.
Don't deserve more than a year and a half imprisoned -- -- -- -- get that and might not get that and what the problem is going to be -- -- -- this if if this -- young man has committed suicide.
Let's he left a note behind saying this is why he did -- if you don't know -- -- we don't know we don't even know he's gotten yet.
But it's getting very hard for prosecutors to have the nexus to charge into eighteen year old or any kind of -- manslaughter but.
He referred cryptically -- I've said this is the roommate.
The roommate asked for room again it's happening again people -- I Chet don't you -- video chat me between 930 and noon and they believe this is the hour which it happened.
His Twitter feed has 250 followers he was released 125000 dollars bail you say that he should have to go to jail right.
I don't say -- happily.
I mean but a lot of prosecutors have to do their jobs and then not happy about what they have to do but I think -- In our society and you know they're a new law without the anti bullying laws about things like this happening on FaceBook.
You would I ever spoken about it before the young woman who -- this -- because of being bullied on FaceBook.
An example you reset those dots the law has not been going what the law had -- there is there -- now these anti bullying don't get marginal effect before that.
So I do think an example needs to be set this is look at the location we're at high school and college you sometimes think people would continue to -- no he put on his face and -- -- dead.
-- -- Broadcasting.
Well where's the line well here's what the law says he took the -- is collecting reviewing sexual images without consent is a fourth degree crime in Jersey.
Could lead to probation -- up to eighteen months in prison.
What you don't do shaft -- you did you use these two weeks -- to set an example for society at large as authorised advocating that we do here.
When you do is punish these individuals appropriately.
And at this point we don't even know who the alleged victim this is -- this gentleman who unfortunately may have jumped off the George Washington Bridge was -- somebody else with him.
There's a lot more investigation has to -- -- and statutorily inherent in the statue.
Is if you gave notice to the videotaped person.
There is no crime -- so a lot more has to go into this a lot more find out key.
