Former state chemist Annie Dookhan was arrested at her Franklin home by Massachusetts State Police Friday morning and taken to Station H-3, State Police Foxborough Barracks for booking, according to the Boston Globe.
Dookhan is expected to appear for arraignment later Friday in Boston Municipal Court on two counts of obstruction of justice and one of falsifying her academic record, according to the Globe.
The Globe writes Dookhan "allegedly lied about the integrity of drug evidence she analyzed in two instances and allegedly lied under oath about having a master’s degree in chemistry, the attorney general’s office said in a statement."
"According to State Police reports obtained this week by the Globe, Dookhan has admitted to improperly removing drug evidence from storage, forging colleagues’ signatures, and not performing proper tests on drug evidence for 'two or three years,'" the Globe reports.
