Prosecutors rest case in trial of ex-Rutgers student charged with webcam spying on roommate
NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) ' Prosecutors have rested their case in the trial of a former Rutgers student accused of using a webcam to spy on his roommate's intimate encounter with another man.
Lawyers for Dharun Ravi (dah-ROON' RAH'-vee) are expected to present an investigator and several character witnesses starting Friday.
They'll also have to decide whether Ravi will take the stand. If he testifies, it won't be until at least Monday.
The 20-year-old Ravi is charged with bias intimidation, invasion of privacy and other crimes. Ravi isn't charged in his roommate's death.
The roommate, Tyler Clementi, committed suicide by jumping off the George Washington Bridge days after the intimate encounter in September 2010.
Prosecutors presented witnesses for 10 days in the case.
