Former Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has been charged for his role in the Flint water crisis, which caused an outbreak of Legionnaires disease and contaminated residents’ homes with lead-based water.
An indictment filed by the state attorney general’s office charged Snyder with two counts of willful neglect of duty after a years-long investigation into one of the worst environmental disasters in US history.
The misdemeanor charges could put Snyder behind bars up to a year along with a $1,000 fine.
Snyder, a Republican, was in office in 2014 when the state decided to alter the water supply, which contaminated homes in Flint with lead-tainted water. (Read more from “Ex-Michigan Governor Charged in Flint Water Crisis” HERE)
