Lab tech allegedly faked result in drug case; 7,827 criminal cases now in question
PASSAIC COUNTY — A lab technician for the State Police allegedly faked results in a drug case, and has drawn into question 7,827 criminal cases on which he worked, according to state officials.
Kamalkant Shah worked as a laboratory technician for the State Police laboratory in Little Falls and was found to have "dry labbed" suspected marijuana, according to a Feb. 29 memo to Public Defender Joseph Krakora from Deputy Public Defender Judy Fallon. Shah's essentially accused of making up data.
"Basically, he was observed writing 'test results' for suspected marijuana that was never tested," Fallon said in the memo.
The memo was released Tuesday on the New Jersey Municipal Court Law Update Service's website.
Shah was removed from lab work on Dec. 10 as soon as the problem was discovered, said Peter Aseltine, spokesman for the Office of the Attorney General. Shah, who received a salary of $101,039, was suspended without pay effective Jan 12, he said.
