CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Victims of a former hospital technician who infected patients with hepatitis C are getting a chance to face him, and some of them are traveling from Kansas to New Hampshire to do it.

David Kwiatkowski has admitted stealing painkillers and replacing them with saline-filled syringes tainted with his blood. He is being sentenced Monday. He pleaded guilty in August to 16 federal drug charges under an agreement that calls for him to spend 30 to 40 years in prison.

Kwiatkowski worked in 18 hospitals before being hired at New Hampshire's Exeter Hospital in 2011.

Since his arrest last year, 46 people in four states have been diagnosed with the same strain of hepatitis C he carries, including two from Kansas who are attending Monday's hearing.
