Ala. County Facing Backlog of 300 Drug Cases

Court officials in one southeast Alabama county say they're starting the New Year with a backlog of more than 300 felony drug cases after a satellite crime lab was closed.

The Dothan Eagle reports the drug cases in Houston County are in limbo as prosecutors await lab results from the state Department of Forensic Sciences so they can take the cases before a grand jury.
