Four More People Charged In Flint Water Crisis

Four more people are charged for their role in the Flint water crisis.

That includes two former state emergency managers, Darnell Earley and Gerald Ambrose.

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette says they failed to protect the people of Flint from health hazards caused by drinking the lead-tainted water.

Former Flint executives Howard Croft and Daugherty Johnson also face charges of false pretenses and conspiracy to commit false pretenses.

Not guilty pleas have been entered by three of the four people just charged in the Flint water crisis.

Flint switched its water source to the Flint River, and it wasn’t treated, so it leached lead from the pipes.

Today Flint is back on the Detroit water system.

In all, Schuette has filed 43 criminal charges against 13 current and former state and local officials.
