A Genesee County courtroom will see another hearing in the Flint water crisis later today.

The charges include false pretenses, conspiracy to commit false pretenses, willful neglect of duty and misconduct in office.

Last week, prosecutors filed involuntary manslaughter charges against Earley and Croft.   The charges are related to a Legionnaires' disease outbreak that took place during Flint’s switch to the Flint River as the city’s tap water source.
