MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - A special investigative panel report has cleared Vermont Attorney General William Sorrell of five of six counts in a complaint alleging campaign finance and other violations. But one count has been referred to the Vermont State Police for a possible criminal investigation.

Sorrell says he’s not worried and has done nothing wrong.

The one remaining count raised by lawyer and Vermont Republican Party official Brady Toensing (“TUN-zing”) alleges that Sorrell agreed to have the state hire a Texas law firm in environmental litigation and got a campaign contribution from it around the same time.

Windsor County State’s Attorney David Cahill, a member of the special panel that investigated Sorrell, says because that part of the complaint contained criminal allegations, the state police will investigate.
