A pharmacist in New Jersey has been sentenced to one year in prison after he used his own savings to buy a life-saving drug for his own family, and then later used that money to buy another life-sustaining drug from another pharmacy, prosecutors said.

In October, Jeffrey Hildebrand, a licensed pharmacist, and his wife, Jessica, were driving on Interstate 93 when they spotted a vehicle in front of them, according to a criminal complaint filed in federal court in Trenton.

Hildebrand asked Jessica to stop and help the driver out, but the woman refused, the complaint said.

When Hildebrands tried to leave the scene, the woman got into a fight with him and told him to stop.

Hilderbrand then pulled out a knife and told her to “take your hands off me,” the complaint alleges.

The woman then told Hildebert she wanted to die, and Hildebreds response was to take her own life.

Hilbert’s actions “were a clear attempt to cause harm to Jessica Hildeberger,” prosecutors said in a statement.

Hildeberts death was the result of “negligent use of a dangerous and deadly drug.”

In September, prosecutors charged Hildebrook with two counts of felony use of force and one count of endangering the welfare of a child.

He was released from jail on $1 million bail and remains free on $5,000 bond.
