Bohner Pleads Guilty!

It was reported today that Richard Bohner, the head of Operations for Synthes USA pled guilty to a misdemeanor of introducing and misbranding Norian across interstate lines. Bohner's sentencing is schedule for November 5th. The other members of the Gang of Four are scheduled for sentencing in October.

Out of curiosity, how do four individuals pull off this entire clinical trial without anyone higher up in the chain of command not knowing what was going on? Something just doesn't jibe! If I was a betting man, I would think that all four will do some time, at least 3-6 months based on federal sentencing guidelines, especially if the maximum is 12 months. If the judge has any conscience, he will sentence them to time, there were three people that died. The Spine Blogger wants to know what its readers think?
