Allegations of Fraud at State Police Forensic Lab

[03/01/2016, 9:37 a.m.]  A memo released yesterday from Passaic County Deputy Public Defender Judith Fallon details allegations of fraud at the State Police Forensic Lab in Little Falls, a laboratory that is likely used by many law enforcement agencies across multiple NJ counties. Here is an excerpt from the memo..

“Laboratory Technician II Kamalkant Shah of the New Jersey State Police Laboratory (in Little Falls) has been found to have ‘dry labbed’ suspected CDS specimens. Basically, he was observed writing ‘test results’ for suspected marijuana that was never tested.
… In Passaic County alone, the universe of cases possibly implicated in this conduct is 2,100.”
