A Flint woman is sharing her story after she was awarded $100,000 by a jury following her refusal to falsify blood test results for Flint children who were exposed to lead-contaminated water during the water crisis.
The Flint water Prosecution led by Solicitor General Fadwa Hammound and Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy announced Friday they have filed two sets of motions to continue the prosecution of nine people related to the water crisis.
The Michigan Supreme Court said a judge has no power to issue indictments in the Flint water scandal. The move wipes out charges against three defendants in the crisis including former state health department manager Nancy Peeler, former advisor Richard Baird, and former state health director Nick Lyon.
The Flint water prosecution team addressed the charges announced on Thursday against former Gov. Rick Snyder and eight others for their alleged roles in the lead contamination and legionnaires’ crises that gripped the city for years.
