Pharmacy Founder Responsible For Meningitis Outbreak Sentenced

Barry Cadden, founder of a now-closed Massachusetts pharmaceutical facility responsible for a deadly meningitis outbreak, has been ordered to serve 14½ years in prison.

A Boston Federal Court judge on Wednesday lengthened Barry Cadden's initial punishment of nine years after it was tossed out by an appeals court.

Cadden was sentenced for a second time after being convicted of fraud and other crimes in the 2012 outbreak that killed 100 people and sickened hundreds of others.

The outbreak was traced to mold-tainted steroid injections produced by the New England Compounding Center in Framingham.
