A former Pfizer district sales manager was found guilty of obstruction of justice Monday, the FBI said in a statement.
Thomas Farina, 42, of Fairport, N.Y., faces 20 years in federal prison and $250,000 in fines after he allegedly made a Pfizer sales representative delete evidence that promoted a company drug for off-label usage not approved by the Food and Drug Administration.
According to the FBI, Farina also had the sales rep. change the dates on a computer and “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.”
Authorities said Pfizer has cooperated fully in the investigation.
