Dharun Ravi planned to turn himself in today, reported the Huffington Post. He also apologized for the first time:
Ravi could have remained free while prosecutors appeal his sentence. But during a hearing Wednesday, he agreed to waive his protection from double jeopardy. He is now not allowed to argue that he’s already served his time if prosecutors prevail on their appeal and he receives a longer sentence.
Ravi requested permission Tuesday to start serving his sentence as he apologized for the first time for his actions, which he described in a statement as “thoughtless, insensitive, immature, stupid and childish.” In court Wednesday, Ravi answered questions from his lawyer and Berman but did not say any more about his apology.
