Chemist Dookhan arraigned in Bristol Superior Court

Chemist Annie Dookhan who is alleged to have fabricated lab results and intentionally tainted evidence has been arraigned in Fall River Superior Court.  Ms. Dookhan had testified at the trial of Robert Annunziata in early 2012 which led to his conviction and state prison sentence of 15 years.  At the time of the trial, and unbeknownst to Mr. Annunziata defense lawyer James Powderly, Ms. Dookhan had been suspended.  As a result of the recent revelations of her misconduct, Mr. Annunziata was awarded a new trial and has since been released after a plea agreement for a time served sentence.
