DA Marian Ryan

(Editor's Note: the following information was provided by the Office of Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan.)

Annie Dookhan’s criminal conduct had a devastating impact on the integrity of thousands of cases. Following the revelation of this misconduct, the Middlesex County District Attorney's Office immediately began proactively identifying and addressing impacted cases. 

Today we have certified that there are 9 remaining cases that we reasonably could and would reprosecute if a motion for a new trial were granted, marking the end of the review process we began in 2012. These cases were identified in close collaboration with our local police departments and are Superior Court cases involving serious drug offenses, where sufficient independent evidence remains available for retesting.
