Deepwater Horizon engineer faces charges

The lawyer for Kurt Mix, the first person to be charged in relation to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, says the charges are misguided and said she is confident her client would be exonerated.

The government says he intentionally deleted text messages from his phone, but the content of those messages still resides in thousands of emails, text messages and other documents that he saved. Indeed,the emails that Kurt preserved include the very ones highlighted by the government."
