Closing Arguments Begin For Trial Over Deadly U.S. Meningitis Outbreak

On Friday, closing arguments are set to begin for the trial of a Massachusetts pharmacist who stands accused of murder and fraud for his part in a 2012 fungal meningitis outbreak that killed seventy-six people and sickened hundreds more across the country. According to prosecutors, Glenn Chin recklessly failed to ensure that drugs at the New England Compounding Center were produced in sanitary conditions, an oversight which lead to a deadly meningitis outbreak that sickened 778 people nation-wide. Chin has pleaded not guilty to the charges against him, including racketeering and mail fraud. If convicted, he faces up to life in prison.
