Disgraced chemist Annie Dookhan’s lawyer is seeking to have 11 obstruction of justice charges against her dismissed, arguing there is no evidence that his client willfully misled anyone while testifying in those cases.
Suffolk Superior Court judge Jeffrey Locke already rejected a similar motion to have two obstruction of justice charges in Suffolk County dismissed, ruling that Dookhan’s testimony was misleading.
Instead of separate hearings on each charge, there will be a single hearing to rule on this latest motion filed.
The hearing was scheduled for Friday but was rescheduled for June 27 because not all of the paperwork from those counties has arrived at the Suffolk courthouse.
Dookhan is under indictment on 27 charges, and she has admitted to falsifying results over nine years.
