Coakley acknowledges what she describes as a “severe credibility issue” on any cases Dookhan has been involved with.

The AG says Dookhan has been cooperative on any cases she’s been questioned about.

Coakley also indicated Dookhan is likely to face more than the two counts of obstruction of justice and one of falsifying her academic record that she currently faces. (MetroSource)
