Charges in pharmacy case indicate US sees crime ring
Boston Globe - 12/18/2014
Daniel Medwed, a law professor at Northeastern University, said prosecutors seemed to have ensnared everyone involved, even those to a lesser degree, and he questioned whether all the defendants will go to trial.
He also said that prosecutors appear to be trying to send a message to the defendants and others who work in the health care field with the sweeping indictment that includes charges of murder.
“There is a message they are sending to other organizations and other employees, specifically those working in public care, and the message is, ‘you have to tread carefully,’ ” Medwed said. “If you’re producing items that affect the public welfare, you should be held accountable.”
