AWOL over sick day - UPDATE

All charges against a Nova Scotia woman in the Royal Canadian Navy who is fighting cancer, and who was charged with being absent without leave and facing a court martial have been dropped, the woman and her lawyer say.

"I feel vindicated," Able Seaman Carol Anne Deyoung said.

Both Deyoung and her lawyer, Maj. Sarah Collins, said the charges were dropped Friday afternoon.
