    PG&E Pleads Guilty to 84 Counts of Involuntary Manslaughter in California Wildfire

    LOS ANGELES—Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) pleaded guilty on June 16 to 84 counts of involuntary manslaughter stemming from a devastating 2018 wildfire in Northern California touched off by the utility company’s power lines.

    The guilty plea, part of an agreement with prosecutors in Butte County, is intended to end all criminal proceedings against PG&E from the Camp Fire, which broke out on Nov. 8, 2018, and destroyed much of the town of Paradise.

    Bill Johnson, the company’s chief executive officer, entered the plea during a hearing in Butte County Superior Court.

    “I am here today on behalf of the 23,000 men and women of PG&E, to accept responsibility for the fire here that took so many lives and changed these communities forever,” Johnson said in a written statement.

    Shrewd move. Admit to a crime so you won’t be prosecuted for it.
