BOSTON, March 22 The co-founder of a now-defunct
Massachusetts compounding pharmacy was found guilty of
racketeering and fraud but cleared of murder on Wednesday for
his role in a 2012 meningitis outbreak that killed 64 people
across the United States.
Barry Cadden, who was a co-owner and president of New
England Compounding Center, was convicted by a federal jury in
Boston after a two-month trial centered on an outbreak linked to
the company's drug that sickened 753 people in 20 states.
