Prosecutors have agreed to drop felony charges against three former
employees of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro who were
fired for allegedly using university equipment to operate a freelance
photography business. The firings sparked faculty unrest over the treatment of the three, who worked in university relations.
Two photographers, Chris English and David Wilson, will see their
charges dropped in six months if they each pay restitution to the
university and complete 40 hours of community service. Lyda Carpen, who
supervised them, saw all charges against her dropped.
