A New Jersey jury trying Dharun Ravi has returned a guilty verdict for invasion of privacy in the case concerning the death of his Rutgers roommate Tyler Clementi, finding he committed a hate crime against Clementi but not Clementi's anonymous sexual partner. Ravi was charged on 15 different counts. In addition to the invasion of privacy, he was also found guilty on charges of tampering with evidence, and bias intimidation against Clementi, according to the list of verdicts posted at NJ.com. He was acquitted of bias intimidation against clementi's sexual partner, who's gone only by the initials M.B.

Ravi faces up to 10 years in prison and possible deportation back to his native India.
