Originally posted by Jeff RiffHe got involved in a company that was making prescription drugs for cancer patients.....This gentlemen felt so strongly about this company, which happened to be a non-profit organization, that he even put his mother on the drugs when she was battling the disease....she survived, and he attributed that to the drug.....
Time went by and he continued to get more involved in the organization...He felt so strongly about it he got his son involved in the donation and marketing aspect of the company. As time went along he felt that the company was on to something big until they got busted by the feds.... As the story goes...apparently the executive people involved in this non-profit organization were embezzling money. In the USA this is a VERY big deal.
From the start he was offered a plea bargain for as little as 6 months for a guilty plea. I will tell you as the sea is blue, this man had NO idea this was happening...if in fact it was happening to begin with. There is no way he would put the well being of his family on the line for a quick buck. This guy made millions in the construction industry....He was a Christian man that believed in the system, and under no circumstance would he claim guilt for something he knew he did not do. He believed that it was a farce from the start...he felt that it was a conspiracy against the drug that they had faith in...

You only have to look at previous cases involving drug companies that tested their drugs on the African nation regardless of whether they drug produced illness or even death. Then there is the case of the drug that actually contained the AIDS virus that was halted from US sales but in order to make a profit was shipped off to various 3rd world nations to be sold there.
Drug companies are the bane of the worlds existence. They seek to profit from human suffering.
I would go so far as to say that the prosecution of the man you describe is a combination of the drug companies having a say and the inherent failure of the legal system as a whole (which is also about making profit).
Follow the money and you will get your answer.
