state attornies are - to the best of my knowledge - under some pressure
to get a good conviction ratio. so they tend to be reluctant to pursue
cases that are doubtful. it appears that the SA in this case came to
the conclusion that his case against dmitry is weak, but the one
against elcomsoft is good, so by concentrating on that one, he has a
higher chance of success.
