Mass. Chemist Expected To Plead Guilty Next Month

Annie Dookhan will appear in court November 22, and is expected to plead guilty in a scandal that's jeopardized thousands of drug cases.

Wednesday, there was a hearing on a motion to suppress statements Dookhan made to State Police.

Dookhan was not in court for the hearing.

If Dookhan pleads guilty to obstruction and evidence tampering, a judge has said she wouldn't impose a sentence of more than 3-to-5 years.
