Flint Prosecution Team Issues Statement

LANSING – The Flint Water Prosecution Team today issued the following statement regarding the latest development in the case against former Governor Rick Snyder:

“This decision is not surprising, and the prosecution will appeal.  We anticipated that this ruling would be similar to other outcomes that only considered process.  Our team has been preparing for this and looks forward to addressing these issues in court.  As we have reiterated time and again, rulings up to this point have been on process alone---not on the merits of the case.  We are confident that the evidence clearly supports the criminal charges against Rick Snyder, and we will not stop until we have exhausted all possible legal options to secure justice for the people of Flint.”

Please note: A criminal charge is merely an allegation, and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
