The former Rutgers student accused of using a webcam to spy on a roommate who later committed suicide is in court for a pre-trial conference.

At issue in Friday’s proceeding in the case of Dharun Ravi is what questions prospective jurors will be asked when they are brought in beginning Feb. 21.

The trial is expected to start by early March.

The case has gotten widespread attention largely because Ravi’s roommate, 18-year-old Tyler Clementi, killed himself days after the alleged crime.

Ravi faces 15 charges. The most serious is a hate crime, bias intimidation. It’s punishable by up to 10 years in prison. Ravi says he’s not guilty and turned down a plea deal last month in which prosecutors would have recommended he serve no jail time.
