NEWPORT, Vt. - Vindication for a former North Country Hospital employee accused of stealing a laptop loaded with patient information.

The bizarre case started last fall when Christian Cornelius says an employee gave him the laptop to fix. Cornelius discovered it contained sensitive patient information and tried to return it to the hospital, but North Country filed a trespass order against him. He finally returned the computer under court order.

Prosecutors charged Cornelius with larceny and possession of stolen property, but they are now dropping those charges.
