DETROIT (AP) — Prosecutors are signaling that they want to pursue the same charges against former Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder and eight others in the Flint crisis over lead-contaminated water. The move comes just a few days after the state Supreme Court said indictments must be dismissed. The attorney general’s office responded by asking two Flint-area judges who have been overseeing the cases to simply turn the indictments into common criminal complaints and let the charges proceed. Nine people were charged with crimes in 2021, including Snyder. The state Supreme Court said a one-judge grand jury had no power under Michigan law to return indictments.
