The trial has ended in the cyber-bullying case of 20-year-old former Rutgers student Dharun Ravi, who was accused of spying and intimidating his roommate, Tyler Clementi. He was found guilty on charges of invasion of privacy, but jurors found him not guilty on several charges of bias intimidation.

As WNYC reports, Ravi "could face 10 years in prison when he's sentenced. He shook his head slightly after the verdicts were read."

Sentencing has been scheduled for May 21.

Clementi took his own life in September 2011 by jumping from the George Washington Bridge. His brother, James Clementi, was present throughout the trial.
