AG CANDIDATE URGES HEALEY TO RELEASE DRUG LAB RECORDS

By Matt Murphy

STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, JAN. 10, 2018.....The courts have already admonished the Attorney General's Office for the conduct of two prosecutors who handled an investigation into tainted drug lab evidence, but Republican attorney Dan Shores, who is running for attorney general, questioned Wednesday whether the mistakes stopped there.

Shores, a Hingham resident and Boston lawyer, called on Attorney General Maura Healey to publicly disclose all records relating to the office's conduct during its investigation into Sonja Farak, a former drug lab chemist whose evidence tampering and drug use led to the dismissal of more than 8,000 drug convictions late last year. Farak was prosecuted under former Attorney General Martha Coakley.

The Republican, who is one of two candidates vying to challenge Healey in November, appeared to be trying to capitalize on recent national attention being paid to the Farak case after both the Washington Post and Rolling Stone published articles on the scandal.
