WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - The Delaware Public Defender's Office is seeking to reopen and overturn hundreds of old drug convictions as a result of problems at the state's drug testing lab.
The News Journal of Wilmington reports the office has filed more than 420 motions to do just that since April 30. And more motions are coming. Delaware's public defender says his office wants to revisit all 9,500 felony and misdemeanor drug convictions between 2010 and February 2014.
