MA Alcohol Crime Lab Discovery Violations Lead to Termination of Head of Lab

Posted by Joseph Bernard | Oct 17, 2017 | 0 Comments

The Executive Office of Public Safety and Security ("EOPPS") has concluded its investigation in the Office of Alcohol Testing and issued a report validating Attorney Bernard's allegations of serious discovery violations. The report concluded that the Office of Alcohol Testing routinely withheld documents from defense lawyers in a lawsuit challenging the reliability of breathalyzer test results due to an “unwritten policy not to turn these documents over to any requester.” As a result of this investigation, the Head of the Office of Alcohol Testing has been terminated.
