(Springfield, MA) — More than 200 Hampden County drug cases have been dropped so far on account of indicted state chemist Sonja Farak. Last week DA Mark Mastroianni dropped two more. Alleged cocaine dealers John Jackson and Melissa Serrano of Springfield are now off the hook. Farak is accused of tampering with evidence and stealing drugs while working at the state lab in Amherst. The 35-year-old Northampton woman is scheduled for trial February 5th.
