ROCKVILLE — Prosecutors have dropped charges against a woman who tried to steal the notes of a right-wing commentator at the University of Connecticut after she agreed to a one-year ban from campus and donated $500 to a UConn human rights center.

State’s Attorney Matthew Gedansky agreed Tuesday to drop misdemeanor charges against Catherine Gregory. He called it an appropriate resolution of the case.

The 33-year-old Willimantic resident took papers from a lectern in November as Gateway Pundit writer Lucian Wintrich prepared to give a speech titled “It’s OK To Be White.” Wintrich grabbed her to try to retrieve his notes and was arrested, but the misdemeanor charge was later dropped.

Wintrich denied his speech was racist.
