State High Court Orders More Cases Dismissed

The Supreme Judicial Court of  Massachusetts is throwing out some drug cases after a former state drug  lab chemist was found to be high at work.  

This will be the second round of cases that have been dismissed.  More than 8 thousand cases have already been thrown out.

That means people whose  convictions were based on evidence worked on at the Amherst lab get  their cases dismissed.  

This follows thousands of cases that have  already been thrown out due to lab worker Sonja Farak.  

She was found to  have been working high from 2009 to 2013, and plead guilty in 2014 to  stealing cocaine from the lab.
