legal causation needs to be a proximate and legal certainty. >> it doesn't negate the issue at large that they created the conditions. >> is it your meaning that the staircase that was installed, the one you referenced, that it was up to code or a safe way to enter and exit the second floor of the building? >> what i am saying is that the description of the staircase as it's been put out there so far is incorrect. it was not a rickety staircase built out of palates. it was a prefabricated staircase. >> there were two. >> perfectly safe staircase. >> one was blocked off. >> my understanding is that the other staircase may have been blocked. frankly, i have not been given enough facts yet. i haven't been given discovery. we don't know what happened to
the back staircase that night. >> can you tell us more about the fire department being in there? they were in there for a gathering. was that on the second floor. >> musical events. >> yes, five months before. >> how do you know that? >> we have talked to witnesses who saw them in there. we have talked to multiple people who observed the event happening. >> do you have evidence for your theory that pg & e smart meter over heated and that's the cause? >> we do know that the lines heating the building were under sized. when there is too much electricity coming through too small of equipment it can lead to overheating. >> the district attorney said that with fire officials, law enforcement asked if people
lived there and they said they lied by insisting no one lived in the warehouse. >> the issue of whether or not people live there is not relevant to the night of december 2. >> the people living there, if they didn't want to be at the party, there were people sleeping that night that didn't attend the party and said they had fire extinguishers next to them, and had lived in the conditions, and how they would behave when parties were held. are you suggesting people that didn't want to attend the party would have had to leave their living space to avoid the fire. >> you say it's unrelated but there were people who that was their home. they lived there. even if they didn't want to attend, if they were sleeping in their bed that night they were at it. >> that's correct. my understanding though is that the vast majority of the victims were not residents and that only one resident perished
in the fire. the issue is was the event that night the event that was leading to the death? our argument is that the fact that folks were living downstairs, the fact that the zoning code did not allow for that kind of arrangement, that is not the negligence that would lead to the convictions for these deaths. >> are you saying that the event with the fireman is different from the 2015 party they attended after the arson fire outside the building, the sulphur that burned. >> that's the same party. >> five months. >> that is not five months. >> year and a half. what difference would it make if pg & e or the fire
department or others played a role and conditions were negligent? how would that affect your client's liability unless somehow he is being blamed? this is simply a question his responsibility. for these purposes whether pg & e has something to do with it. >> per criminal negligence a defendant must be the proximate cause, the most culpable cause, and if intervening factors are in between him and the event, this is relevant to explain why he is not the one true cause. >> just because there are other contributors doesn't mean he can't be -- >> that's something for the civil court to decide. >> wouldn't it be something for a criminal court to decide. >> the criminal court will have to defense. >> there are third party
capable defenses in all kinds of cases. we will be progress on prosecuting pg & e. we'll be prosecuting the fire department in this case. all the inspectors that failed to perform their duties. that's a perfectly good defense. >> do you think they should be held criminally liable? who should be held criminally liable? should anyone? pg & e and the inspectors? >> let's talk circumstancely. pg & e has been held criminally liable as we all know. secondly the fire chief was asked really to leave mostly because of this event. so we'll go after them. should they have been charged?
my perspective is no criminal action should have been sued out of the entirety. this should have been relegated to the civil jurisdiction. >> i want to say i respect the almenas, i understand they have a lot of grief. you have been hard on mg & e, on the inspectors, on city officials. >> i ain't even started. >> yet a lot of folks can argue that the family or mr. almena specifically is also criminally responsible. so you put the blame on everybody else. yet you shift some folks would argue the liability from the almena family. >> we are not the ones who brought the charges. >> we will defend by pointing the finger at the real
culprits. that happens in every case. >> we have been listening to attorney tony serra who represents derick almena, one of the managers of the ghost ship warehouse. this media conference has spilled into our ktvu noon newscast. we will of course bring you an update moments from now. we thank you for joining us. >> absolutely. this is really a fascinating news conference. we heard from the defense team for derick almena, one of the two men facing charges in connection with the deadly ghost ship warehouse fire. we heard the defense laying out its strategy. we have our crime reporter who was in the news conference and he joins us live with more on what we heard. good afternoon.
>> reporter: good afternoon. a very vigorous spirted defense of the ghost ship leader by three of his attorneys as derick almena sits in jail recently joined by max harris. they're saying that their client is being made a political scape goat by the alameda county district attorney nancy oh, mallee who they called an avenging angel. on the other side of the equation they're saying derick almena is made out to be a demon. they're casting blame on other entities including city of oakland, pg & e, building inspectors that did not catch to the fact that this was a problematic warehouse. we hear other attorneys saying that derick almena is a good family man, not someone who should be pointed out or not someone who should be shouldering or placing the blame on this individual for the deadly fire. they say they have sympathy.
micah allison is saying everyone should show some compassion for them. now, we do have some thoughts from this news conference earlier from tony serra. >> we believe that this prosecution is being bought in bad faith, that indeed there are alterior motives that lie behind the prosecution of our client. we believe that he is being made a scape goat for persons and entities culpable for this great tragedy. >> reporter: micah allison, the wife of derick almena, did show emotion when shilling he describes the fact that they are not bad people, that he is
not selfish or reckless, this was something they never had plans for. there are some pretty specific questions from the media saying why did you leave the premises and go to a hotel with your kids? suggesting did you know this place was unsafe? the response by the attorney was they simply wanted a quiet place for their children to sleep that night. >> henry, thank you. we want to get some more analysis. we are joined by a legal analyst in our studio. we heard a lot. we heard that derick almena's defense team essentially laid out their tragedy almost like what we would hear in a courtroom. how effective were they in painting almena as a family man and someone who didn't know the dangers that existed inside this building? >> they did a good job, brought emotion out. they talked about the law. they're trying for some sympathy. they're reaching out to possible jurors in the area
saying here is our explanation for what happened. it wasn't us. it's almost a magic type trick where you go don't look at us. look over there. you know how bad pg & e is. they blow stuff up. so they're responsible. >> it's interesting they put the picture behind the attorney showing almena, his wife and two children. do you think that will work just playing on emotion. they said he is a good man. he did not think they should be there. they wanted to protect their family. what do you think of that? >> if i were prosecuting and i prosecuted for 14 years i would work to him in the courtroom and look him in the eye and say you are a pretty good guy but you killed 35, 36 people. you were criminally negligent. why fight that? he is to a certain point a good man. notwithstanding, he is guilty of this particular crime.
they're hoping again to reach jurors. when they pick the jury they're hoping to have jurors that will buy into that argument. i thought they did a splendid job. >> we heard tony serra saying there may be negligence on the part of my client. he may be reckless but it doesn't rise to the level of criminal negligence. how tough will it be for the d.a. to prove criminal negligence. >> let's start with the 36 bodies and work backwards with that. emotionally that will touch the jurors. 36 people died because of this. then you have almena making money because of this knowing the condition of that building. one of the arguments i thought was oh, we moved the children to another area, to a hotel. that makes sense so they were in a quiet area. notwithstanding they say we wouldn't have lived there in a
bad condition, a condition that could cause death. that's a lot different than inviting 200 people into this warehouse and blocking all the exits and making it more difficult. having just your family there hopefully you can get out easily. if you put that many people in what they call a fire trap and that's a lot different. >> remember that was an unpermitted event. there was illegal construction within there and people should not have been living there from a legal standpoint. >> he certainly took a shot at nancy oh, mallee. >> he did. >> he said you have political aspirations. i have heard she does. he is going to attack her rightfully or wrongfully in this case. i think she would be very smart. they have laid off the owner of the building and the owner's daughter who was generally managing properties of the
mother in the states. why not file against them now? that cuts the legs out of their argument. even if you can't extra indict her from china, still you have a case against her. >> quickly, do you think there is a chance we still see the owner of the bidding facing charges? >> i absolutely do. >> it will be interesting moving forward. they did attack d.a. as well as pg & e, the fire department, city building and code inspectors. we will of course continue our coverage on this. >> always continuing coverage on the deadly ghost ship warehouse fire and resulting investigation and criminal charges that ve come from this. follow us at ktvu.com and also on twitter and facebook as we cover upcoming court appearances next week by derick almena and his co-defendant max harris. still ahead, golden state warriors are gearing up for a big one. game four of the nba finals, we

hand mark and it is okay. >> this is the thing with the team. this is what i go back to. not only are they aware of 16- 0, they have been aware of it. but they embrace history. you go back to the 73 wins or to the 24 wins to start a season which was a record, all the record win streak at home which they did over parts of two seasons. every historical landmarker they have hit it, know it, embrace it and they want to do this. >> they're on the road tonight on the quicken arena with this game but is there a certain comfort level they have playing since they have played there the last three years in nba finals. >> probably. they have played a lot of basketball in that building. nothing surprising. i don't think it could be any louder than it appeared to be. if they don't play their a game
and cavs game. >> they're mentally tough. >> they are dialed and i think it ends tonight. >> thanks. of course the game is not being played on warrior's home court in oakland but that is where a lot of fans will be gathering later tonight even though the team is on the road. >> that's right. christian, i expect thousands of fans. of course they want to see history in the making on that big screen. >> reporter: absolutely. what better place to watch the game than at oracle arena. you get to watch with thousands of fellow fans. you get to watch that game on big screen. as you can imagine it will be pretty unbelievable, warriors holding an official watch party. the big game is shown on the jumbo tron. the team did the same thing for wednesday, fans packed in and
