Annie Dookan, the former chemist charged with faking test results at a state drug lab, pleaded not guilty in two separate courtrooms today to charges of obstruction of justice. It is the latest development in a case that has jeopardized tens of thousands of drug cases statewide, according to prosecutors.

Dookhan faces 27 separate charges, including tampering with evidence and perjury. Today, she appeared in court and pleaded not guilty to obstruction of justice charges, for allegedly claiming that she held a Masters degree in chemistry.
