A New Hampshire hospital worker was sentenced to 39 years in prison Monday for causing a multistate outbreak of hepatitis C last year, according to a news release from the U.S. attorney's office in New Hampshire.
A former New Hampshire hospital technician who infected patients as old as 80 with hepatitis after injecting himself with stolen painkillers was sentenced on Monday to 39 years in federal prison. The technician, David Kwiatkowski, 34, in August admitted to leaving dirty syringes for hospital use despite knowing that he was infected with hepatitis C. He pleaded guilty to obtaining controlled substances by fraud and tampering with a consumer product. Kwiatkowski had asked U.S. District Judge Joseph Laplante to sentence him to 30 years in federal prison. Prosecutors had requested a 40-year sentence, saying that Kwiatkowski knowingly put patients in eight states in danger over about a decade of work as a traveling hospital technician.
