Crime-lab scandal: Suspicions ignored as bosses let Massachusetts chemist work on




.Law enforcement officials say Dookhan tested more than 60,000 drug samples involving 34,000 defendants in her nine years at the lab. More than a dozen defendants are already back on the streets as authorities try to determine whether Dookhan’s actions tainted the evidence in their cases, and more could be sprung. Authorities say more than 1,100 inmates are doing time based at least in part on Dookhan’s work.

Hmm.. 34,000 cases?

What about her case?

No criminal charges?

Yes criminal charges. However, that seems like a very tiny bail for what she allegedly did.


Dookhan was arrested by State Police yesterday morning at her home in Franklin, Massachusetts, but is expected to post her $10,000 bail by the end of the week. Once free on bail, she must turn over her passport and wear a GPS monitoring device.
