Prosecutors recommend DOJ charge Boeing over 737 Max crashes, sources say

Federal prosecutors have until July 7 to determine what action to take after determining that Boeing failed to meet the terms of a 2021 settlemen

Federal prosecutors are recommending to senior Justice Department officials that Boeing face criminal charges for failing to meet the terms of a 2021 agreement that would have shielded it from prosecution in connection with crashes in 2018 and 2019 that killed 346 people, according to two people familiar with the discussions.

Criminal charges are only one of several options the department is considering and no final decision has been made, one of the sources said. The sources spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss private deliberations.

News of the recommendation was first reported Sunday by Reuters. Boeing declined to comment.
