Bail revoked for Mass. lab chemist in stolen drug case

Posted: Updated:

NORTHAMPTON, Mass. (AP) -- Bail has been revoked for a former chemist charged with stealing drugs from the state crime lab in western Massachusetts where she worked.

A Hampshire Superior Court judge on Monday granted the prosecution's request to revoke Sonja Farak's bail because cocaine was found in her system during a random drug test.

Prosecutors say the 35-year-old Farak admitted she snorted "a few lines" at a party.

Farak's lawyer said her client didn't know drugs would be present when she was invited to the party and asked that instead of bail revocation, conditions of her release be stiffened. She'll now spend Christmas behind bars.

Farak was arrested in January after co-workers told police drugs were missing. She's pleaded not guilty to tampering with evidence and stealing and possessing drugs and is scheduled for trial in February.
