The Attorney General's Office has indicted two employees of the Medical Examiner's Office in connection with a drug scandal that has impacted hundreds of court cases across the state.
James Woodson, 38, of Wilmington and Farnam Daneshgar, 54, of Wilmington were arrested May 28 by Delaware State Police, said Jason Miller, spokesman for the Attorney General's Office.
In April, Woodson was suspended with pay from his $42,000 position with the office. Miller said Woodson was a death investigator with the office who also had served as a courier for the Controlled Substances Laboratory within the Medical Examiner's Office. The lab has been closed since February, when the investigation was announced.
