Ghost Ship warehouse master tenant Derick Almena plead guilty to 36 counts against him that may result in a 12-year prison sentence.

The charges involved at least one count of manslaughter and multiple counts of involuntary manslaughter resulting from the deaths of 36 people who perished in a fire during a music party on Dec. 2, 2016 at the warehouse in the 1300 block of 31st Avenue in Oakland.
