More charges coming in Flint water crisis criminal investigation

Dec 19, 2016

Prosecutors say they will announce another round of criminal charges in the Flint water crisis tomorrow.

The announcement does not indicate if there are new charges against the current defendants or if charges are being filed against new defendants.

Nine current and former government employees have been charged so far in the aftermath of the Flint water crisis.

Flint’s former utilities director and a retired state health department epidemiologist have cut deals with prosecutors. 

The other seven defendants face court hearings next year.

The investigation into Flint’s lead tainted tap water, and other related problems, has so far cost millions of dollars with no end in sight.
