“CPCS [ the Public Defenders Office] is pleased that the lab has begun its review of cases and looks forward to moving on to the next phase of this collaborative hair review project in partnership with the Middlesex DA’s office and the New England Innocence Project,” Kavanaugh said in a statement.
In an interview last May, Kavanaugh said it is “quite possible that innocent people are in prison due to flawed forensic testimony that came out of the Massachusetts State Police crime lab.”
