Michigan health director, 4 others charged with manslaughter over Flint water (STA BREAKING NEWS and ARCHIVES)

by Theresa @, Wednesday, June 14, 2017, 20:49

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette charged five public officials with involuntary manslaughter on Wednesday in connection to the ongoing Flint water crisis. Those charged include the state’s director of Health and Human Services, Nick Lyon.

This latest batch of charges is the fourth linked to the water disaster, which exposed thousands of Flint children to lead-laced water and is linked to an outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease that contributed to at least 12 deaths.

As the water catastrophe stretches into its third year, Lyon is the highest-ranking member of Republican Governor Rick Snyder’s administration to get ensnarled in the ongoing criminal investigation.

The Detroit Free Press reported that Schuette has no plans to charge Snyder, who has faced calls to resign. However, Schuette noted that “we have attempted to interview the governor,” but “we were not successful.”
