Sentencing scheduled for two Flint water crisis figures
Two state officials will be sentenced next month on charges connected to the Flint water crisis.
Mike Prysby and Stephen Busch both entered pleas of no contest to minor misdemeanor charges last month. A judge this week scheduled their sentencing for February 13th.
Prysby and Busch had faced more serious felony charges connected to their work for the Michigan Department of Environmental Qualityduring Flint’s water crisis.
In all, seven of 15 government officials criminally charged in connection with the water crisis have reached plea deals with prosecutors.
So far, no government officials have actually stood trial, though judges have bound two over for trial.
