Do you think the 39-year prison sentence for David Kwiatkowski, a traveling medical technician convicted of infecting dozens of patients with hepatitis C, is too lenient, too harsh, or appropriate? <More Info>
A traveling medical technician was sentenced this week to 39 years in prison for stealing painkillers and infecting dozens of patients in four states with hepatitis C through tainted syringes. Prosecutors had pushed for a 40-year sentence, saying 34-year-old David Kwiatkowski created a "national public health crisis." Defense lawyers argued that a 30-year sentence would better balance the seriousness of the crime against his mental and emotional problems and his addiction to drugs and alcohol, which clouded his judgment.
