Prosecution expected to rest Thursday in webcam spying trial of ex-Rutgers student
NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) ' The prosecution is expected to rest in the trial of a former Rutgers University student accused of using a webcam to spy on his roommate's intimate encounter with another man.
It's not clear whether defense lawyers Thursday will have defendant Dharun Ravi (dah-ROON' RAH'-vee) or anyone else testify.
The case has garnered attention because his roommate, Tyler Clementi, committed suicide in September 2010, just days after the alleged spying.
Ravi faces 15 criminal counts including invasion of privacy and charges that he tried to cover up his actions. He could face 10 years in prison if he's convicted of the most serious offense ' bias intimidation.
On Wednesday, jurors heard Ravi's voice for the first time in a nearly hour-long video of a statement he gave to police.
