Wall Street executive back to work after charges dropped

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - A Wall Street executive says he's ready to restart his business a day after prosecutors dropped criminal charges against him.
    
Benjamin Wey (way) returned to Manhattan federal court Wednesday to get his electronic ankle bracelet removed.
    
He emerged smiling from the courthouse. He says he'll immediately restart a financial business that was wrecked when prosecutors charged him two years ago with making tens of millions of dollars illegally through stock manipulation.
    
Prosecutors dropped charges after a judge tossed out most of the evidence against Wey, saying investigators obtained it improperly.
    
Wey told reporters Wednesday that he feels exonerated and vindicated. He still faces a civil case brought by the Securities and Exchange Commission.
    
He also has appealed a $5.6 million judgment against him in a sexual harassment case.
