Yep. They sure did. Just imagine how many lives Dookhan and her crime lab destroyed.

Massachusetts may be facing the largest mass dismissal of criminal convictions in US history. Around 20,000 drug-related convictions are expected to be overturned. The cases all involve a former state chemist who falsified evidence.

Tuesday is the deadline for district attorneys in Massachusetts to tell the state's Supreme Judicial Court which of the estimated 24,000 or so tainted cases could be ordered back to trial with evidence that was not handled by former state drug lab chemist Annie Dookhan, who was found to have tampered with or falsified evidence related to thousands of drug cases.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Massachusetts believes around 20,000 of those cases will be thrown out, an amount that would be unparalleled in the US. The ACLU, the Massachusetts public defender's office and private attorneys have worked on the dismissals for more than four years since revelations of Dookhan's actions.

Imagine the number of divorces, child custody losses, job losses, vehicle repossessions, foreclosures and bankruptcies that resulted from Dookhan's treachery.

I heard on NPR that the ACLU and Massachusetts state investigators are looking into a second crime lab suspected of doing the same thing.
