BP to Face Criminal Charges in Oil Spill?


BP may soon be hit with criminal charges for last year's Gulf oil spill.

The Wall Street Journal reports that prosecutors are considering charging several BP employees for allegedly providing false information to regulators about drilling risks.

Felony charges could be announced next year.

The oil spill is considered the worst in U.S. history. Eleven workers died.

The oil company as well as the Department of Justice declined to comment.
