NEW BRUNSWICK - Prosecutors have rested their case in the Dharun Ravi Rutgers webcam spying trial.

Ravi is accused of using a webcam to spy on the intimate encounter of his roommate Tyler Clementi and another man. Clementi committed suicide days later.

Ravi's attorneys are expected to present an investigator and as many as nine character witnesses starting tomorrow. They also have to decide whether or not Ravi will take the stand. If he does testify, it won't be until at least Monday.

The 20-year-old 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 convicted of the most serious offense, bias intimidation.

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

Prosecutors presented witnesses for 10 days in the case.
