Pfizer district manager was to be sentenced on June 11 for obstruction of justice: What happened?
A former district sales manager for Pfizer was convicted on March 16, 2009, in federal court of obstruction of justice.
Thomas Farina, 42, of Fairport, NY, was found guilty following a five day trial in Boston.
Prosecutors said evidence presented during the trial proved that in the summer of 2004, Farina caused a sales representative under his direction to alter documents and backdate the alterations on his computer to delete the evidence of the promotion of a drug for uses and dosages for which it was not indicated or approved for promotion by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
The evidence demonstrated that Farina instructed his sales representative on how to change the clock and date setting on the computer, and then alter and re-save the documents in order to make the sanitized documents appear to have been last modified at an earlier time.
Sentencing was scheduled for June 11.
But there are no news out there.
Farina faced up to 20 years imprisonment, to be followed by three years of supervised release and a $ 250,000 fine.
