NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) -- The jury deciding the fate of a former Rutgers University student accused of using a webcam to spy on his roommate's intimate encounter with another man has asked the judge a quick question.

Jurors asked for a copy of the judge's instructions to them on Wednesday afternoon, after less than an hour of deliberations.

Judge Glenn Berman said he didn't have a copy to give them, but said he would answer specific questions if they had them.

Jurors are deciding the guilt or innocence of Dharun Ravi (dah-ROON' RAH'-vee), who faces 15 criminal charges, including bias intimidation.

His roommate, Tyler Clementi, committed suicide in September 2010, days after the alleged spying.
