The Justice Department has dropped wire fraud charges against Xi Xiaoxing, chairman of Temple University's physics department. Prosecutors had claimed Xi had sent to China the schematics for a device called a pocket heater that he'd signed an agreement to keep secret. But a number of scientists, including the device's inventor, provided sworn statements that the blueprints the government said he sent were not for the pocket heater.
It took a jury 26 minutes to decide that Jonathan Vanderhagen wasn't guilty.
A court ruled that officers did not have enough information to know whether or not stealing violates the Constitution.
This vote is "a hopeful sign that the harmful policies of marijuana prohibition will soon be a relic of the past."
Jonathan Vanderhagen believes a judge doomed his son to an early death. The judge says Vanderhagen's Facebook posts were intimidating.
