How Mass. Should Deal With Convictions Affected By Dookhan
The drug lab crisis continues to be an issue up for debate in Massachusetts. The American Civil Liberties Union is asking the state’s highest court for guidance on how to deal with criminal convictions that have been thrown into question after former chemist Annie Dookhan admitted to falsifying drug tests.
Matthew Segal, legal director for the Massachusetts ACLU, joined WBUR’s Morning Edition to talk about the constitutionality of allowing the affected criminal cases to linger as the state continues to investigate the scandal.
