A pipeline company was recently indicted on criminal charges for knowingly discharging a pollutant into state waters and wildlife charges; one employee faces up to three years in prison if convicted. Are criminal charges appropriate in such a case?

Yes, companies and their staff need to know there are severe consequences for not taking adequate steps to protect the environment.
Maybe; financial penalties would be appropriate but not jail time.
No, there was no loss of human life.
