Indictment Arrives For Hepatitis C Suspect

A former hospital employee at the center of a Hepatitis C outbreak in New Hampshire is facing new federal charges.

David Kwiatkowski was arrested in July for stealing syringes filled with pain medication. Officials say he would inject himself and then reuse the needles on patients, infecting at least 30 with Hepatitis C.

A Grand Jury has indicted Kwiatkowski on a total of 14 federal charges, including tampering with a consumer product and illegally obtaining controlled substances.

He denies the charges, and says he was unaware of his Hepatitis C status.

Before arriving in New Hampshire, Kwiatkowski worked in seven other states as a travelling medical technician, which prompted authorities outside New Hampshire to test patients for Hepatitis C.
