Will another domino fall this week in the Flint water investigation?

Michigan Attorney General's office
Corinne Miller

There isspeculation that another person criminally charged in the Flint water crisis will agree to cooperate with prosecutors.

Before she retired, Corinne Miller was a top epidemiologist with the state. Investigators allege she ordered a health department employee to delete emails about a report showing a spike in blood lead levels in Flint children.

She’s facing two felonies and one misdemeanor charge. Miller is scheduled to appear in a Flint courtroom this week. She’s the only one of eight criminally charged current or former state employees appearing in court this week.

Last week, special prosecutor Todd Flood declined to answer questions about whether Miller or any of the others charged are taking a plea deal in exchange for cooperating with the investigation.

“I’m doing this the right way … one step at a time,” Flood told reporters. “We’ll just do the domino effect.”

One domino has already fallen.

Former Flint city utility director Mike Glasgow has already agreed to a plea deal and is cooperating with prosecutors.

Steve Carmody has been a reporter for Michigan Radio since 2005. Steve previously worked at public radio and television stations in Florida, Oklahoma and Kentucky, and also has extensive experience in commercial broadcasting.
