LAB TECH CHARGED WITH FAKING RESULT IN DRUG CASE

NEARLY 8,000 NEW JERSEY CRIMINAL CASES IN JEOPARDY

New Jersey state police say a lab technician falsified the results in a drug case last December, causing nearly 8,000 drug convictions in New Jersey to come into question. The technician, Kamalkant Shah, was apparently observed by investigators writing test results for a substance that he never tested, a process known as "dry labbing." Shah was relieved of his duties on December 10, and has remained suspended without pay ever since, though it is believed that he has officially retired. He has not been charged with a crime.
