21,587 FALSIFIED DRUG CASES TO BE DISMISSED
Annie Dunkan, a Massachusetts chemist, pled guilty in 2013 to 27 counts of falsifying records, tampering w evidence, obstruction of justice and perjury in various drug cases that led to over 21,000 wrongful convictions.

Dookhan was sentenced 3 to 5, paroling last year after serving 3 years at MCI – Framingham.

Damn Annie Damn.
