Wisconsin pharmacist who destroyed 500 doses of vaccine gets three years in the federal pen

https://www.wisn.com/article/covid-19-pharmacist-sentenced-to-federal-prison-for-tampering-with-vaccine/36661014

Steven Brandenburg, 46, was also given three years federal probation after release, and ordered to pay $84,000 in restitution to the hospital he worked at.

Prosecutors recommended 51 months. Max sentence was 20 years and a $500,000 fine.

In addition to being antivax (at one time, he evaded getting a mandatory flu shot by affixing a label from a bottle of flu vaccine to a syringe of saline solution), he liked to bring guns to work in a rolling briefcase, believes the world is flat and thinks he's a prophet.

1. He sounds like a charmer, & a complete nutball. He'll need a new career when he gets out...

2. But, other than that? ;)

It sounds like a fair sentence. The poor old boy will be banned from firearms from now own. It breaks my heart....

4. I'm Thinking His Rx Gig Is Over For Good Too

Good. As a pharmacist, he was a public health danger.

6. A felony conviction does not look good on any resume. His next job may be carrying hods.

He is done as any kind of professional. I wouldn't let him within three locked doors from controlled substances.

5. Not necessarily

Even a federal felony is not an automatic gun ban. There are a number of factors and conditions. It's a real shitshow.

7. His was a Federal crime, I don't believe that he will ever again legally own or use a firearm.

State vs. Federal Gun Restoration Laws

Under federal law, convicted felons lose their firearm rights, which is a decision that stemmed from a law developed in 1934. At that time, the federal government mandated that no person convicted of a felony involving violence would be able to have his or her firearm rights restored. Since the Gun Control Act was passed in 1968, anyone convicted of a felony whether or not it involved violence loses his or her firearm rights.
