First day of deliberations concludes in Rutgers spying case

NEW BRUNSWICK - The criminal case of a former Rutgers University student accused of using a webcam to spy on his roommate's intimate encounter with another man is in the hands of a jury.

Closing arguments were delivered yesterday in Dharun Ravi's trial. Jurors got the case late this morning and deliberated for nearly four hours before being dismissed for the day.

There's no dispute that Ravi saw a snippet of live-streamed video of his roommate, Tyler Clementi and another man. It is up to a jury to determine whether that and his other actions constitute the 15 crimes with which Ravi is charged. The most serious charge is bias intimidation, a hate crime punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

Clementi committed suicide by jumping off the George Washington Bridge days after the alleged spying in September of 2010. Ravi is not charged in his roommate's death.
