Pharmacist at drug compounder NECC convicted, but not of murder

Posted March 24, 2017

More than 60 witnesses were called over the nine-week trial.

A former pharmacy executive was convicted Wednesday in a 2012 fungal meningitis outbreak that killed 64 people nationwide but he was acquitted of the most serious charge, second-degree murder. He was also convicted of conspiracy, which means jurors believed he conspired with others to carry out his crimes.

The jury did not hold him directly responsible for 25 deaths allegedly caused by the tainted medicine shipped by the facility, a decision that could spare Cadden from a life sentence. Sentencing is scheduled sentencing for June 21. Federal prosecutors also argued that Cadden tried to avoid regulators through a complex scheme involving fake prescriptions. Here, Cadden is shown arriving at the federal courthouse last week.

Sixty-four people died, including 19 in MI, the most deaths of any state. Cadden was the first to stand trial, although three officials have pleaded guilty.

None said guilty to the two deaths that occurred in Florida. The pharmacist faces a maximum of 20 years in prison on each of the racketeering counts and mail fraud.

"It matters because the stakes are so high", Schumacher said.

"The lack of regulation in this area was the petri dish that allowed Mr. Cadden's fraud to grow, just like this dirty lab allowed the fungus to grow in his drugs", Lipton said in the statement.

Cadden was charged in the deaths of 25 people.

"As frightful as each of these stories is, there is nothing that shows that Mr. Cadden did something that the government can link to the death of that person", Singal said. The identities of the jurors are not known, and they could not be reached for comment.

"Barry is very conscious in the flurry of excitement over the verdict that we not forget the people who have suffered terribly during this ordeal, the people who have lost loves ones, and Barry's thoughts and prayers remain with them throughout". "There's nothing in the verdict that alters that view, which we've had since the inception of this case".

But the jury did find Barry Cadden guilty on multiple racketeering and mail fraud counts.

"I'd expect them to go full speed ahead", Schumacher said.
