Former Massachusetts Drug Lab Chemist Annie Dookhan Released from Prison

Annie Dookhan was released about a month ago after serving approximately 2 years and 4 months of a three- to four-year sentence after pleading guilty to faking laboratory tests that may have affected a thousand or more criminal cases. Dozens of defendants were released from prison in the aftermath of the scandal. It is believed that a lack of a prior criminal record led to her early release. Dookhan has not commented on any future plans after her release. Because she lied about having a master’s degree to get her previous job, she is forbidden from falsifying her job credentials as a condition of her sentence.

  1. “…one of the conditions of her sentence is that she not use false credentials in seeking future employment…”
    Apparently, pre-conviction, it’s ok to falsify credentials in the forensics biz.
