— Attorney General Bill Schuette on Wednesday accused two state environmental officials and a Flint water administrator of criminal acts that caused the tainting of the city’s drinking water — and vowed others will face prosecution over the public health crisis.The criminal charges leveled against Michigan Department of Environmental municipal water regulators Michael Prysby and Stephen Busch as well as Flint utilities administrator Michael Glasgow are the result of Schuette’s investigation of how Flint’s water system became beset with lead leaching from pipes into tap water.“These charges are only the beginning, and there will be more to come, that I can guarantee,” Schuette said at a Wednesday afternoon news conference in downtown Flint.Busch was DEQ’s Office of Drinking Water’s Lansing and Jackson district supervisor and Prysby worked under him as a district engineer.The charges against Prysby include: two counts of misconduct in office; one count of conspiracy to tamper with evidence; tampering with evidence; and separate violations of water treatment and monitoring laws.
Lee-Anne Walters, the Flint mother who took her complaints about Flint’s water sickening her four children to the EPA, said Wednesday the criminal charges are “a step in the right direction in getting justice.”“It won’t be full justice until people are actually in jail serving time,” said Walters, who is listed in court documents as the victim of the alleged crimes of Busch, Prysby and Glasgow.On several occasions during Wednesday’s news conference, Schuette and his team did not rule out the investigation leading to the governor’s office.“There are no targets and nobody’s been ruled out,” Schuette said.Special prosecutor Todd Flood said the attorney general’s investigation has amassed 2.5 million pages of emails from multiple levels of government in the wide-ranging probe.“Nobody’s off limits either,” said Andrew Arena, Schuette’s chief investigator.Arena, the former head of Detroit’s FBI office, echoed Schuette’s vow that more individuals will face criminal charges in the probe.“This is the biggest case in the history of the state of Michigan and I think history will bear me out when we’re done,” Arena said.
“This is widespread.”Arraignment Busch and Prysby were arraigned separately Wednesday afternoon, hours after a magistrate authorized a slew of charges against them.
Busch faces one charge of misconduct in office, one charge of conspiracy to tamper with evidence, tampering with evidence of high lead levels and separate violations of water treatment and monitoring under the Michigan Safe Drinking Water Act he was charged with enforcing.“We allege and we will prove that Mr. Prysby altered test results, which endangered the health of citizens and families of Flint,” Schuette said.
