The US at­tor­ney for the dis­trict of Mass­a­chu­setts late last week called on the state’s dis­trict court to sen­tence the for­mer co-own­er of the now-de­funct New Eng­land Com­pound­ing Cen­ter to 18 months of jail time for his role in the cen­ter’s qual­i­ty de­vi­a­tions that led to more than 100 peo­ple dead from a fun­gal menin­gi­tis out­break.

Gre­go­ry Conigliaro was con­vict­ed of con­spir­ing with more than a dozen oth­ers at NECC to de­ceive the FDA and mis­rep­re­sent the fact that the cen­ter was on­ly dis­pens­ing drugs pur­suant to pa­tient-spe­cif­ic pre­scrip­tions.
