Coakley should not be overseeing criminal probe into drug lab scandal

The Globe feels better about the pursuit of justice in the drug lab crisis (“State makes progress on legal mess from drug lab,” Editorial, Dec. 3), but I do not. Why in the world is Attorney General Martha Coakley still in charge of chemist Annie Dookhan’s criminal investigation?

Yes, I realize that the larger issues have been turned over to the state’s inspector general. But the attorney general is still looking at the actions of Dookhan herself, and presumably at those with whom Dookhan interacted.
