DA reviewing drug tests in Hampshire, Franklin counties

Special court sessions will convene later this month to hear cases by defendants whose drug evidence was handled by Dookhan.

Cases with drug evidence in Hampshire and Franklin counties, as well as Athol, are sent for testing to either the UMass lab or to the State Police drug lab in Sudbury. Thousands of drug samples from the Jamaica Plain lab have been sent to the UMass lab for testing in recent years to deal with an ongoing backlog.
