4 men plead guilty in Bellevue, Kirkland hash-oil explosions

The Associated Press

Four men who were charged in July for causing two separate hash-oil explosions have pleaded guilty to federal charges.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Seattle said Daniel Strycharske and Jesse Kaplan pleaded guilty Friday to endangering human life while manufacturing a controlled substance. They also pleaded guilty to a charge of manufacturing hash oil and marijuana. Prosecutors say they caused the Nov. 5 explosion at the Hampton Greens apartment complex in Bellevue. Former Bellevue Mayor Nan Campbell was hospitalized for injuries she suffered trying to escape the flames. She later died in the hospital.

In another case, prosecutors say Robby Meiser and Bruce Mark pleaded guilty on Thursday for their part in a Jan. 1 explosion and fire at the Inglenook Apartments in Kirkland.

Sentencing was set for early March.
