KRCBWebsite1From the Office of the Sonoma County District Attorney, Jill Ravitch:
 
"Sonoma County District Attorney Jill Ravitch, along with the District Attorneys for Napa, Humboldt and Lake Counties, announced today that no criminal charges would be filed against PG&E related to the October 2017 Northern California wildfires.
 
"After an extensive review, each office determined that insufficient evidence exists to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that PG&E acted with a reckless disregard for human life in causing the fires, the standard necessary to sustain criminal charges. The District Attorneys consulted with the California Attorney General’s Office during the review of the cases and prior to the decision not to file charges."
