"Former Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder, top aide Rich Baird and former health director Nick Lyon have been told they will face criminal charges resulting from Flint's water crisis, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.
Former Flint Public Works director Howard Croft also expects to be charged again, his lawyer, Jamie White, confirmed Tuesday. White said he was informed Monday about the development.
Up to 10 individuals, including members of Snyder's executive office, are set to be formally indicted as soon as Thursday after Attorney General Dana Nessel's office launched a new investigation in 2019, the source confirmed to The Detroit News."
