Sentencing coming for chemist in drug lab scandal
MASSACHUSETTS (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Sentencing recommendations are expected Friday for a chemist accused in a Massachusetts drug lab scandal that has jeopardized thousands of criminal cases.
Prosecutors say they will recommend that Annie Doo-Kan spend five to seven years in state prison, but her lawyer says he will recommend one year in jail.
More than 1,000 criminal cases have been dismissed or not prosecuted because of tainted evidence or other fall-out from the shutdown lab where Doo-Kan worked.
