Were you sentenced and convicted due to evidence that was tampered with by crime lab technician and chemist Annie Dookhan? The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court has determined that drug convictions involving Dookhan’s tainted evidence can be challenged at a motions hearing, without the possibility of added charges or increased penalties, and potentially be dismissed. In order to pursue actual justice and prevent the miscarriage of justice perpetrated by Annie Dookhan, you will need to maximize your chances by hiring Boston drug crime attorneys you know you can lean on.

Annie Dookhan is a former chemist of the Hinton State Laboratory Institute in Boston, Massachusetts, who was hired in 2003. During her years as a chemist and analyst at the crime lab, she claimed to have personally handled and tested more than 24,000 evidence samples, mostly for drug crime cases. She would later admit to lying about her background and credentials, and falsifying and tampering with essentially all of the evidence she handled or tested to ensure that defendants would be found guilty of drug crimes; in a truly heinous display of abusing her role, she would sometimes not only add cocaine into samples that tested pure or clean, but would also increase or manipulate the weight of substances she was “testing” to also increase the potential penalty. Her unlawful actions have been the sole cause of countless wrongful convictions throughout Massachusetts.
In 2012, she was arrested, charged, and arraigned on numerous counts of obstructing justice and tampering with evidence. Prosecutors alleged she even lied about having a Master’s degree in chemistry, bringing doubt that she could have ever done a proper job analyzing drug and evidence samples, even if she tried to do so legitimately. She has since served her state prison sentence but the consequences of her wrongdoing are still numerous and significant.
If you were arrested, charged, and convicted for a drug crime of any sort between 2003 and 2012 – the time frame for criminal misconduct – there is a high chance that Annie Dookhan’s lies and misfit practices precluded your right to a fair trial and resulted in a wrongful conviction. You need to seek justice by filing a Dookhan motion with our Boston criminal defense lawyers soon.

You deserve a fair trial. You deserve to be seen in an unbiased, untampered light. There are no cases our criminal defense lawyers take more personally than Dookhan re-motions, for her actions are a total affront to the criminal justice system and the rights of the American people.
