(WXYZ) — Former Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder was in court via video call for a pre-trial hearing Tuesday on charges related to the Flint Water Crisis.
Last week, the Michigan Attorney General's Office announced charges against Snyder and eight other former Michigan public officials.
Snyder was charged with two counts of willful neglect of duty for his alleged role in the Flint Water Crisis. He was arraigned and given a $10,000 personal bond for each count with conditions he personally appears for all standard court hearings. He has pleaded not guilty on the charges.
Snyder and Howard Croft, the former City of Flint Public Works director, were in court starting at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday. Croft is also charged with two counts of willful neglect of duty.
