Plea deals expected for 2 California men in warehouse fire

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Two men are expected to accept plea bargain prison sentences Tuesday to resolve felony charges connected to a Northern California warehouse fire that killed dozens of partygoers at an unlicensed concert in 2016.

One of the defendants’ attorneys says Derick Almena and Max Harris will each plead guilty in exchange to prison sentences of less than 10 years each.

They will likely be released after serving half their sentences because of time off for good behavior.

They are scheduled to appear in an Oakland courtroom Tuesday afternoon.
