Allegations Of Prosecutor Misconduct In State Drug Lab Scandal15:01

This article is more than 3 years old.

Two former state prosecutors are being accused of misconduct in connection with a state drug lab scandal in western Massachusetts.

The case involves former state drug lab chemist Sonja Farak, who stole and used the drugs she was supposed to be testing in the Amherst lab.

A judge on Monday threw out seven convictions connected to Farak, and found that the two prosecutors deliberately concealed documents about the extent of Farak's drug use while on the job.
