Fallout From Farak Case Begins

(Springfield, MA) — The fallout from the Sonja Farak case has begun. Two convicted drug dealers will get new trials on account of her actions. Farak is the former state chemist from Northampton, accused of stealing drug evidence from the crime lab where she worked at UMass Amherst. This week, William Guzman of Holyoke and Nathan Berube of Springfield were granted new trials by Judge Jeffrey Kinder. Requests from three other defendants were denied, and there are ten more awaiting a ruling. Farak was arrested in January and has denied charges of larceny, evidence tampering and drug possession.
