Six More Charged In Flint Water Crisis

Attorney General Bill Schuette on Friday outlined 18 criminal charges against six individuals, three each from the Department of Environmental Quality and Department of Health and Human Services, for their alleged role in withholding vital information from the public about ongoing lead poisoning after Flint switched its drinking water source to the Flint River.

The charges, filed in Genesee County's 64th District Court in Flint, are the third round of legal actions related to Flint, the other two being criminal cases announced in April against two DEQ employees and one city of Flint employee and a civil lawsuit last month against companies for their alleged roles in the water crisis.
