Criminal Charges to be Filed Against State and Local Officials in Flint Water Crisis

According to NBC News

As many as three Michigan officials will face criminal charges Wednesday in connection with lead contamination in Flint’s municipal water system, multiple government sources said Tuesday.

The sources told NBC News and NBC station WDIV of Detroit that state Attorney General Bill Schuette will announce criminal charges against two employees of the state Department of Environmental Quality and one who works for the City of Flint.

The attorney general’s office gave no official indication Tuesday what it would discuss at Wednesday’s news conference, where it said Schuette would make a “significant announcement.” Among those scheduled to be at the news conference are the Genesee County prosecutor and the chief investigators for the state’s Flint water task force.
