Report: Criminal charges will be announced Wednesday over Flint water crisis

On Wednesday, Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette will announce criminal charges in connection with the Flint water crisis, three sources told the Detroit Free Press on Tuesday.

It's possible as many as four people, all connected to the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality and the City of Flint, will be charged, the sources said, including one city official who signed a document saying the homes tested in Flint all had lead service lines, a statement investigators say was false. More charges are expected as the investigation continues, and a source said prosecutors are trying to learn more about the people expected to be charged on Wednesday and who may have instructed them to falsify information.
