Medical tech convicted of infecting dozens with Hepatitus C
NEW HAMPSHIRE -- New details about a medical tech convicted of infecting dozens of people with Hepatitis C
David Kwiatkowski was sentenced today to 39 years in prison.
He was a Cardiac Technologist in 18 hospitals in seven states before being hired at New Hampshire's Exeter Hospital in 2011.
Kwiatkowski had moved from job to job despite being fired at least four times over allegations of drug use and theft.
The 34-year-old admitted stealing painkillers and replacing them with saline-filled syringes tainted with his blood.
Since his arrest last year, 46 people have been diagnosed with the same strain of Hepatitis C he carries.
He pleaded guilty in August to 16 federal drug charges
