Insider becomes outsider

A man is accused of hacking into his former employer's systems two weeks after walking out and deleting "an entire computer drive of personal employee information". It is claimed that he was "was one of only three people who knew the needed passwords to log into the company's computer system at that time." The prosecution will presumably have to explain how they drew the specific conclusion that it was him that deleted the disk, not one of the other two people who, by their admission, also knew the passwords, someone else entirely, or one of those chance IT events caused by cosmic rays or gremlins.
