Defendant won't testify in US webcam spying trial
Lawyer: Man charged in Rutgers webcam spying case won't take witness stand in his own defense
By The Associated Press

NEW BRUNWSICK, New Jersey (AP) ' A former Rutgers University student accused of using a webcam to spy on his roommate's intimate encounter with another man won't take the witness stand in his own defense.

Indian-born Dharun Ravi's lawyer informed the judge of his decision Monday as he rested his case.

Prosecutors presented about 20 witnesses over 10 days as they built a case against Ravi.

The 20-year-old Ravi is charged with 15 criminal counts, including bias intimidation and invasion of privacy. Bias intimidation is a hate crime punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

His roommate, Tyler Clementi, committed suicide by jumping off the George Washington Bridge in September 2010, just days after the intimate encounter. Ravi isn't charged in Clementi's death.
