"По данным ACLU, Соня Фарак, эксперт криминалистической лаборатории Amherst, проводившей экспертизы для судов, сама оказалась наркозависимой и в течение нескольких лет давала заключения, находясь под воздействием запрещенных веществ.
Наркотики она воровала в лаборатории либо изготавливала самостоятельно на рабочем месте. Фарак арестовали в 2013 г. и впоследствии приговорили к полутора годам тюрьмы. Однако, как утверждают правозащитники, после ареста эксперта сотрудники прокуратуры сделали все возможное, чтобы скрыть масштаб ущерба, который она нанесла правосудию."
"Annie Dookhan was born Annie Sadiyya Khan in San Fernando, Trinidad and Tobago in 1977. She moved to the United States when she was a child and eventually became a citizen. In 2003, she was hired as a chemist at the Hinton State Laboratory Institute in the Jamaica Plain neighborhood of Boston. She married Surrendranath Dookhan in 2004.
"Annie Dookhan (born 1977) is an American convicted felon who formerly worked as a chemist at Massachusetts crime lab and admitted to falsifying evidence, affecting up to 34,000 cases.
"The problem was severe enough that Governor Deval Patrick ordered the lab shut down.
In August, police interviewed Dookhan at her home in Franklin, where she admitted to altering and faking test results in order to cover up her frequent "dry labbing," or visually identifying samples without actually testing them. She even went as far as to add cocaine to samples in which no cocaine was present. She said she had been dry-labbing for as long as three years. At one point, she broke down, saying, "I messed up, I messed up bad. I don't want the lab to get in trouble."
