Glenn Chin To Be Sentenced In Deadly Meningitis Outbreak

A Massachusetts pharmacist convicted of mail fraud and racketeering in connection with a deadly meningitis outbreak is set to be sentenced.

Prosecutors in Boston's federal court will ask a judge Wednesday to sentence Glenn Chin to 35 years in prison for his role in the 2012 outbreak that killed 76 people and sickened hundreds.

Chin was cleared in October of second-degree murder charges, but convicted on dozens of other counts. Chin's lawyers are asking for about three years behind bars.
