Michigan’s Attorney General is making what his office is calling a “significant” announcement in his Flint water investigation Wednesday

It's expected criminal charges will be announced.

Attorney General Bill Schuette launched the investigation three months ago into whether any state laws were broken in the Flint water crisis.

A series of decisions designed to save money by switching Flint’s drinking water source resulted in the city’s pipes being damaged. The pipes continue to leach lead into the city of 100 thousand’s drinking water. 

Schuette tapped a former Wayne County assistant prosecutor and a retired FBI Detroit bureau chief to lead the probe.

Schuette will be joined by Genesee County prosecutor David Leyton at the 1 p.m. news conference in Flint.
