(WILX) - Tuesday morning, a preliminary hearing for former governor Rick Snyder was held in 67th District Court for his role in the Flint Water Crisis.

Snyder and the former director of the Flint Department of Public Works, Howard Croft have preliminary hearings in their misdemeanor cases. Judge William Crawford said that he believed he was not qualified or the appropriate judge for the case. The next hearing is a status conference scheduled for next Tuesday at 9:00 a.m.

Snyder is charged with two counts of willful neglect of duty. Snyder believes the charges against him should be dismissed because his alleged crimes occurred in the state capitol, not in Flint.
