A Tredyffrin Township man has been cleared of charges that he used software to spy on his wife.
While the couple were divorcing, Jay Anthony Ciccarone, 39, allegedly installed the program Web Watcher on her computer to read her e-mails.
His attorney, Ellen Brotman, argued that prosecutors could not prove why Ciccarone used the software.
At a pretrial proceeding last Friday, Chester County Judge James P. MacElree II dismissed charges of unlawful use of a computer, intercepting communications - both felonies - and unlawfully accessing stored communications, a misdemeanor. Other counts were dismissed in November.
