Senior Executives of Medical Drug Repackager Sentenced for Defrauding Healthcare Providers
Earlier today, in federal court in Brooklyn, Gerald Tighe and Stephen Kalinoski, were sentenced by United States District Court Judge I. Leo Glasser to six months' home confinement, four years' probation, and 300 hours of community service, for wire fraud conspiracy in connection with their operation of Med Prep Consulting, Inc. (Med Prep), a now-defunct Tinton Falls, New Jersey-based medical drug repackager and compounding pharmacy, which sold adulterated and contaminated drug products to healthcare providers across the country. As part of their sentences, Kalinoski will forfeit $140,000 of criminal proceeds to the government. The amount of forfeiture owed by Tighe and the amount of restitution both defendants must pay to Yale-New Haven Hospital, which discovered it had received drug products from Med Prep contaminated with mold, will be determined by the Court at a later date. The defendants pleaded guilty to the charges on July 14, 2017.
