TECHNICIAN WHO SET OFF CHILLING HEPATITIS C OUTBREAK TO PLEAD GUILTY

August 12, 2013
A hospital technician who allegedly triggered a multi-state outbreak of hepatitis C plans to plead guilty in exchange for a prison term of 30 to 40 years, according to a plea agreement filed Monday in New Hampshire federal court.   David Kwiatkowsk is accused of stealing drugs and infecting patients with hepatitis C through contaminated syringes.
 
The plea agreement says David Kwiatkowski can sidestep criminal charges in Kansas, Georgia and Maryland — states where authorities allege the traveling cardiac technologist injected himself with stolen syringes, which were later used on unsuspecting patients, according to The Associated Press.
