Over the past 9 years, Annie Dookhan has done tests for 31,000 criminal cases, which is an astounding quantity of work. That would be about 10 tests a day, not counting the time appearing in court to testify if the defendant demanded a trial and challenged the test results.
Well, Annie now is fired, and she doesn’t have the Master’s degree in Chemistry she claimed to have. She is accused if forging other people’s names on documents, mishandling samples and not following established testing procedures.
Her coworkers thought she was doing more work than was possible to do and suspected her work, but were reluctant to push their suspicions to her manager. Hmmm Let me think a minute…. Hmmm
I’m having a really hard time finding a picture of her in any news stories. It’s almost like the media are protecting Dutch people.
