Ravi, 20, is facing 15 charges including invasion of privacy and bias intimidation for allegedly using a webcam to spy on his roommate, Tyler Clementi, who later committed suicide.

Judge Glenn Berman gave the jury the rest of the day off in preparation for closing arguments after the defense rested its case late Monday morning.

If convicted of the most serious charge, bias intimidation, Ravi could face up to 10 years in prison.
