Former Michigan Gov. Snyder’s attorneys say charges were filed in wrong county
Rick Snyder are striking back, telling prosecutors Tuesday that the Flint water case should be dismissed because he was charged in the wrong county. He was indicted by a Genesee County judge who sat as a grand juror and considered evidence presented by prosecutors. Snyder was one of nine people charged in a new investigation of the Flint water crisis, including former state health department director Nick Lyon. As it did during the old criminal probe, the state will cover the legal expenses of former state officers and employees who face charges. Legal fees and expenses in the first case against Lyon totaled $1.6 million over 19 months, he said.
