Drug Testing Expert Was High For Eight Years
Friday, November 25, 2016
A former chemist who tested drugs for Massachusetts police departments in thousands of court cases was high almost every day she went to work for eight years, investigators have said.
Sonja Farak, who worked for an Amherst laboratory which tested drug samples for police, was on methamphetamines, ketamine, cocaine, LSD and other drugs during most of her time there, even when she testified in court, according to a report.
Cyndi Roy Gonzalez, a spokeswoman for Attorney General Maura Healey, said the information on Farak "will no doubt have implications for many cases".
