ABC News(NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J.) — The criminal charges against Dharun Ravi were handed over to a jury Wednesday following closing arguments in a case that has generated 17 months of intense media attention after Ravi’s roommate, Tyler Clementi, jumped to his death from the George Washington Bridge in September 2010.

Ravi is charged with multiple counts of invasion of privacy, tampering with evidence, and bias intimidation—a hate crime punishable by up to 10 years in prison—for allegedly using his webcam to spy on Clementi with another man in their shared Rutgers dorm room just weeks into their freshman year.
