Guilty plea expected in Mass. drug lab scandal

BOSTON (AP) -- A chemist at a Massachusetts drug lab who allegedly admitted faking test results in criminal cases is expected to plead guilty to obstruction of justice, perjury and tampering with evidence charges.

Annie Dookhan of Franklin has a change-of-plea hearing scheduled for Friday in Suffolk Superior Court. She initially pleaded not guilty to 27 charges.

During a court hearing last month, prosecutors said Dookhan admitted "dry labbing," or testing only a fraction of a batch of samples, then listing them all as positive for illegal drugs.

Hope they not only lock her away, but charge her for the retrials needed.

Every time I start to feel boring, I remember there is a monthly magazine devoted to elevators.
