North County Times

The San Diego County district attorney’s office has dropped a remaining misdemeanor charge of wrongful influence against Tri-City Medical Center Director Kathleen Sterling, who had been accused of illegally voting on an item in which she had a financial interest.

District attorney Bonnie Dumanis issued a statement Thursday saying the matter had been dismissed “in the interest of justice” after prosecutors determined the case wasn’t strong enough to move forward.
