NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J., March 15 (UPI) -- Jurors deliberated for a second day Thursday in the trial of a Rutgers student accused of invading the privacy of his roommate, who later committed suicide.
Dharun Ravi, 20, faces a possible 10 years in prison if convicted of bias intimidation, which is considered a hate crime under New Jersey law.
Jurors deliberated for nearly four hours Wednesday without reaching a verdict. Deliberation resumed at 9 a.m. Thursday, The (Newark) Star-Ledger.
Ravi is accused of 15 counts of bias intimidation for secretly viewing roommate Tyler Clementi and another male student through a webcam. The two were captured in an intimate embrace, about which Ravi later tweeted.
Clementi was aware of the tweets and threw himself from the George Washington Bridge days later. Ravi was not charged in Clementi's death.
