Kristen Diane Parker, guilty

In a follow up to a previous entry, Kristen Diane Parker, the Colorado surgical tech who infected scores of patients with hepatitis C, has pleaded guilty to five counts of tampering and five counts of illegally obtaining a controlled substance. She will serve a 20 year prison term for her actions. She had faced a life sentence if she had not accepted the plea bargain.

Apparently some of the victims are not pleased with the deal:

"Hollynd Hoskins, an attorney representing nine Rose Medical Center patients who have tested positive for hepatitis C, said her clients were not happy with the plea deal and are considering civil action against the hospital."

I guess they are going where the money is.
