First Criminal Charges Related to the BP Oil Spill: Two years after the Deepwater Horizon well leaked nearly five million barrels of oil into the ocean, the first criminal charges were filed. The suspect? Former BP engineer Kurt Mix was accused of intentionally destroying evidence related to the spill.

Federal Bureau of Investigation believed that Mix destroyed text messages related to the spill. After a rigorous investigation by law enforcement officials, it was found that Mix indeed tried to get rid of messages concerning the size and flow rate of the spill.

When the leak first occurred, various methods on how to plug the spill were discussed. One of these methods was called Top Kill. Mix and other engineers had known that in order for operation Top Kill — pumping heavy drilling fluid into the leak from the surface from a mile above to plug the hole — would only work if the flow rate was 15,000 barrels or less per day.

Yet one of the text messages Mix sent to his supervisor and recovered by the Federal Bureau of Investigation read, “Too much flowrate ¾over 15,000 and too large an orifice.”  This is a stark contradiction to BP’s initial comments that the flow rate was approximately 5,000 barrels a day.

If you are one of the countless business owners or individuals in Florida affected by BP’s negligence, you deserve compensation.

The effects of the BP oil spill were seen on wildlife immediately — birds’ feathers were drenched in oil, sea turtles washed up on shore and even some mammals showed signs of exposure. The images the public saw in 2010 were reminiscent of the Exxon Valdez spill of 1989. But what few seemed to realize was that the oil and subsequent cleanup might affect the health of individuals living on the Gulf Coast. - See more at:
