High Court To Deal With More Tampered Drug Cases

posted by John Baibak -

The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial  Court is set to hear arguments later this year on whether thousands of  drug convictions in the state should be vacated. 

A brief was filed last  week to have the court toss eleven-thousand cases potentially tainted by  Sonja Farak, who admitted to getting high on evidence while working as a  chemist at a state drug lab in Amherst. 

About eight-thousand cases were  already dismissed in connection to Farak's misconduct and 17-thousand  more cases were dismissed last year in the aftermath of a separate drug  lab scandal.
