Source: Politico

“The Justice Department will criminally charge Boeing for violating the terms of a prior agreement that allowed the manufacturer to avoid prosecution for two fatal plane crashes in 2018 and 2019, according to two people familiar with the matter. DOJ will give Boeing a week to either plead guilty or risk a trial, according to two people who participated in a Sunday evening call with DOJ officials who discussed the contours of the plan. Boeing declined to comment on any potential trial or plea agreement. The Justice Department could not be reached for comment Sunday evening.” (06/30/24)
