NH Prosecutors Request Additional Time to Indict Person Involved in Exeter Hospital Hepatitis C Outbreak

NH prosectuors have requested additional time to indict David Kwiatkowski, the health technician prosecutors believe infected unsuspecting patients at Exeter Hospital’s cardiac catheterization lab with hepatitis C. Prosecutors have asked for an extension to November 30. Since defense lawyers have agreed with the request, it appears likely the new motion will be granted.
According to Foster’s Daily Democrat, “U.S. Attorney John Kacavas on Wednesday filed a motion asking a judge to give him until Nov. 30 to indict David Kwiatkowski, who’s accused of infecting 32 patients at Exeter Hospital. Prosecutors say they need more time because investigators are still conducting interviews and performing scientific analysis in multiple states.”
