Prosecutor makes last pitch in webcam spying trialProsecutor: Ex-Rutgers student troubled by gay roommate a month before alleged webcam spying
NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) ' A prosecutor says there's abundant proof that a former Rutgers University student had a problem with his roommate being gay before he used a webcam to view his intimate encounter with another man.
Prosecutor Julia McClure told jurors Tuesday that Dharun Ravi (dah-ROON' RAH'-vee) says Ravi told friends his roommate was gay almost as soon as he learned who his roommate would be.
She began her summation Tuesday in Ravi's trial.
Ravi faces 15 criminal charges and could be sentenced to 10 years in prison if he's convicted of the most serious of them.
His roommate, Tyler Clementi, killed himself in September 2010, days after the alleged spying.
Jurors are expected to begin deliberations Wednesday.
