[ENT] Alabama lab owner is jailed for 15 years for forging drug test results

Brandy Murrah, 37, has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for forging drug test results at her collections center 

The owner of an Alabama laboratory has been jailed for forging drug test results, falsely claiming that parents had narcotics in their system and costing them custody of their young children in the process. 

A Dale County judge sentenced Brandy Murrah to 15 years in prison last Thursday after she pleaded guilty to one felony charge of perjury and 16 misdemeanor counts of forgery. 

Murrah, 37, previously owned A&J Lab Collections in the town of Ozark, where she would collect blood, urine and hair samples to send off to another center for testing.

According to prosecutors, Murrah owed money to that testing center and they were unwilling to extend her any further credit.  

Thus, Murrah allegedly took matters into her own hands and began falsifying test results in order to save cash.

The Dale County Department of Human Resources used A&J Lab Collections to obtain samples from recovering drug users. In many instances, their tests results would determine whether or not they could keep custody of their children. 

On at least 15 occasions, Murrah falsely claimed that samples had come back positive for drugs. This resulted in multiple parents being separated from their children by the courts.

Murrah’s rouse soon came to an end when Severs’ irate mother decided to investigate further. 

She tracked down Severs’ doctor who subsequently determined that the testing center had never actually screened a sample that Severs had provided to Murrah’s  A&J Lab Collections.
