Two defendants in the criminal trial stemming from the deadly 2016 fire at the Ghost Ship warehouse and art collective in Oakland, California are expected to accept plea deals resulting in less than 10 years apiece in prison, the East Bay Times reports. Last year, both\u00a0pled not guilty to 36 charges of involuntary manslaughter. Derick\u00a0Almena, who's been described as the Ghost Ship collective's "creative director" and the warehouse's\u00a0"master tenant," will accept a plea deal resulting in nine years in prison, while\u00a0Max Harris, described as the collective's "executive director,"\u00a0will accept a deal for six, according to an email sent from the\u00a0Alameda County district attorney to the families of victims. Both men are\u00a0scheduled to appear in court tomorrow (July 3), avoiding a trial that had been set for July 16. They're\u00a0expected to serve their time at a\u00a0county jail, rather than state prison. The December 2, 2016 fire at the Ghost Ship warehouse killed 36 people attending a dance party for electronic label 100% Silk. Though the warehouse was zoned as a commercial space, Almena is accused of allowing multiple people to live there and of\u00a0refitting\u00a0the building with additions, such a flight of homemade wooden stairs, in violation of city code.\u00a0The family of the warehouse owner has said that Almena told them no one was living in the building.
