Felony charges against BP in development

Posted on December 29th, 2011 No Comments

The British oil company, BP PLC, may soon be facing felony charges relating to the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. U.S. prosecutors are developing criminal charges that would be targeted against BP engineers.

The basis for the claims centers around the fact that the engineers supposedly had information regarding the safety of the initial drilling in the Gulf of Mexico that could have possibly prevented the spill from occurring.

These charges may be presented in the beginning of the 2012 year and if any of them lead to convictions, a five year jail sentence could accompany each charge. BP PLC is expected to face several charges as well, with one involving a violation of the Clean Water Act.
