Hearings continue Wednesday as a judge will determine if past drug convictions should be invalidated because of issues with the Delaware state crime lab.

Hearings continue Wednesday as a judge will determine if past drug convictions should be invalidated because of issues with the Delaware state crime lab.

Delaware’s controlled substances lab’s new director says her predecessor, Caroline Honse, was rarely at work and left behind drugs and evidence among personal belongings, likening the scene to an episode of Hoarders.

Robyn Quinn testified in the first day of hearings that could impact the past drug convictions.  Quinn also says the staff and long known about the problems within the office before police intervened.

The hearing continues Wednesday.
