Four more officials have been charged in connection with the water crisis in Flint, Michigan, Attorney General Bill Schuette announced Tuesday. Two are former Michigan state emergency managers, Darnell Earley and Gerald Ambrose, who each face multiple 20-year felonies for their failure to protect citizens from contaminated drinking water and related health hazards. Former city executives Howard Croft and Daugherty Johnson also face felony charges. “The crisis in Flint was a casualty of arrogance, disdain, and a failure of management. An absence of accountability,” Schuette said in a statement. “We will proceed to deliver justice and hold those accountable who broke the law.” There have now been a total of 13 former state and local officials facing criminal counts related to the water-contamination crisis in Flint.
