    Answered . Yes - it is possible that the inmate would still have a case the drugs were sent to and analyzed at the Jamaica Plain lab while Ms. Dookhan was still working there.
    You should contact a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible to preserve the client's rights.
    Good luck.

    Answered . You still may have an appeal. You will need to find out where the evidence in that particular case was tested and by whom. The certifications entered into evidence in your conviction will have to be checked.

    Answered . In my opinion, the fact that the "drugs" went to that lab taints them, whether it was Dookhan who analyzed them or someone else. Your original lawyer should be getting in touch with you to examine the facts of your case, whether or not you are doing time on another matter, etc. If you are not contacted, you need to contact that lawyer. You need to check into this carefully and SOON!..Best of luck!
