    PG&E CEO is found Guilty for Camp Fire

    Pacific Gas and Electric Company CEO Bill Johnson pleads guilty on behalf of his company to 84 counts of felony involuntary manslaughter in the 2018 Camp Fire, the deadliest wildfire in California's history, as well as one felony count of unlawfully starting a fire. PG&E will pay a maximum fine of US$3.5 million, as well as an additional US$500,000 for the cost of investigations.

      Still amazed that any business chooses to remain in this state.

        That's BS, but...$4M? Wow, they got off easy. I was expecting a B.

        Ooooh, you missed something.
        Included in those measures are a fine of $3.5 million — the maximum amount prosecutors could get under the law — and a $25.5 billion settlement that will compensate victims, their families, and Butte County agencies, according to Johnson.

        We had part of a Slinky. But I straightened it.

            Of course, it will! - we need to come up with 25.5 billion dollars


            EDIT: when I hear "PG&E is paying for (x)", I assume we customers are on the hook for (x) + handling fees

                      Did there equipment malfunction? or did a branch just happen to hit the line in a wind storm and catch on fire? We have that happen up here all the time, and thats with them coming by and clearing the areas around the lines. but it rains 340 days a year... so who would want to provide electricity in California? I wouldn't.

                        84 counts of felony = 0 days in jail, right?

                        But let someone like me or you catch a single felony and wonder how much time we'd do.

                            And thread title is misleading. Pleading guilty is different than being found guilty. Pleading usually involves a plea deal like it did in this case. It's a classic shit sandwich.

                              You can't put a corporation in jail.

                              What makes this even more tricky, is that the CPUC has oversight on PG&E, and dictates where the allocated rate money is spent.

                              Why didn't the CPUC audit and confirm those rate allocated expenditures?

                              They share the blame as well, but all finger will point at PG&E as the lessor of the evils and no one goes to jail....
