Six More State Employees Charged In Flint Water Crisis

Six more state employees are charged in the lead-contaminated Flint water investigation.

The six employees names have just been released and are all charged with misconduct in office, willful neglect of duty and other conspiracy counts.

Three employees worked in MDEQ and the other three worked for the state’s Health and Human Services Department.

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette says the six charged contributed to the Flint water crisis by withholding important information from the public.

This is the second round of Flint water-related charges Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette has filed in the case.
