Media Report: Federal prosecutors sought records linked to suspended cannabis regulator as part of grand jury probe

The Boston Globe details the further travails of  Shannon O’Brien

Federal prosecutors have sought a trove of records tied to Shannon O’Brien, including the top cannabis regulator’s personnel file and the contents of her email account, saying the requests were part of a grand jury investigation, according to a copy of a federal subpoena obtained by the Globe.

The subpoena that the office of the US attorney for Massachusetts sent to state officials last fall does not specify who is the target of the investigation, nor did it disclose the scope of the probe.

An Oct. 10 letter that accompanied the subpoena said that a federal grand jury is investigating “suspected violations of federal criminal law.” The letter — sent by Dustin Chao, head of the office’s public corruption unit — did not specify what those violations might be. The Globe does not know if other subpoenas related to the same investigation have been issued.
