(Springfield, MA) — Western Mass may be seeing the fallout of its own state drug lab scandal. Criminal defense lawyer Luke Ryan is seeking all evidence used to prosecute former state chemist Sonja Farak. The Northampton woman faces trial next year for allegedly stealing drug evidence and tampering with samples while working at the crime lab in Amherst. Ryan says he needs the evidence about Farak to defend a Springfield man accused of being a cocaine and heroin dealer. In the Boston area, hundreds of inmates have been set free because of alleged evidence tampering by Annie Dookhan, another former state chemist.
