New Brunswick (New Jersey, US), Mar.17 (ANI): A juror involved in the trial of former Indian-origin Rutgers student Dharun Ravi, has said that he was satisfied with Friday's verdict against the latter.
The jury found that Ravi used a webcam to spy on Tyler Clementi's intimate encounter with another man in September 2010 and that he did it - and told others about it - because of a bias against gays.
Clementi later committed suicide by jumping off the George Washington Bridge.
According to CBS News, the jury found Ravi guilty on all 15 counts against him, even though they judged him not guilty on sub-parts of some charges.
"I'm actually satisfied with the verdict. It was very hard, very difficult," the web site nj.com quoted juror Bruno Ferreira, as saying.
Ferreira says that although the charges of witness tampering, evidence tampering and invasion of privacy were "cut and dry," jurors spent some time debating on the bias charges. He said the panel deliberated for much more than an hour, but did not specify for how long.
Ferreira said he hopes the verdict will bring some peace to the families.
Ravi could get up to 10 years in prison by some estimates, and according to nj.com, immigration experts say that Ravi, who was born in India, also faces a "very significant" chance of having to defend himself in deportation proceedings. (ANI)
