Jury could get the case in Rutgers webcam spying trial after summations Tuesday
NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) ' The jury will likely get the case soon 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.
Summations from lawyers are scheduled for 9 a.m. Tuesday. The jury could get the case Tuesday or Wednesday.
Twenty-year-old Dharun Ravi (dah-ROON' RAH'-vee) faces 15 criminal charges, including bias intimidation and invasion of privacy.
His roommate, Tyler Clementi, committed suicide in September 2010, just days after the alleged spying.
The trial included about 30 witnesses over 12 days of testimony. Ravi himself did not testify.
Other Rutgers students testified. One said he helped Ravi position his webcam to show Clementi's bed. But Ravi's lawyer attempted to discredit him by showing he wasn't always forthcoming with police.
