Nurse Pleads Guilty to Tampering with Fentanyl Vials

Leonard C Boyle, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that BRYAN WILSON, 39, of Madison, waived his right to be indicted and pleaded guilty today before U.S. District Judge Michael P. Shea in Hartford to one count of tampering with a consumer product.

According to court documents and statements made in court, Wilson was employed as a nurse by The Vascular Experts, a Connecticut company that performs outpatient medical procedures.  As part of his duties, Wilson was responsible for conducting sedations on patients and he had access to the secure area in his workplace that contained vials of drugs used as anesthetics, including fentanyl.  In August and September 2021, Wilson took vials of fentanyl that were intended to be used to formulate infusion for patients.  He used a syringe to withdraw the fentanyl from the vials and reinjected saline into the vials so that it would appear as if none of the narcotics were missing.

Judge Shea scheduled sentencing for May 5, 2022, at which time Wilson faces a maximum term of imprisonment of 10 years.

Wilson was released on bond pending sentencing.  He has surrendered his nursing license.

This matter is being investigated by the Food and Drug Administration, Office of Criminal Investigations; the DEA’s Hartford Diversion Control Division; and the Connecticut Department of Consumer Protection, Drug Control Division.  The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Ray Miller.
