Radiologic Technologist at Mayo Clinic Pleads Guilty to Infecting Patients with Hepatitis C

(JACKSONVILLE, FL) -- Radiologic Technologist at Mayo Clinic Pleads Guilty to Infecting Patients with Hepatitis C.  He has pleaded guilty for at least 10 crimes where he swapped out syringes that were infected with Hepatitis C. He worked at Mayo from 2004 to 2010 and he himself was infected with Hep C. He admitted to contaminating syringes by injecting himself with Fentanyl and refilled empty syringes with saline, ultimately leading to spreading of the virus to patients. It took years for investigators to identify him and solve the case.
