A jury has found demolition contractor Griffin Campbell guilty on six counts of involuntary manslaughter in the Center City building collapse which occurred back in 2013.

The jury also found Campbell guilty on 12 counts of recklessly endangering another person for the 12 surviving victims.

Griffin was found not guilty on the more serious third degree murder charges. If he was found guilty of more than one count of third degree murder he would’ve been given a life prison term.

The two week trial included Subcontractor Sean Benschop testified that he was using heavy equipment nearby when the wall crashed onto the Salvation Army thrift shop. One survivor told jurors about spending 13 hours in the rubble before anyone heard her cries. She later had her legs amputated.

Benschop pleading guilty to six counts of involuntary manslaughter and faces 10 to 20 years in prison. Campbell had earlier rejected a similar plea offer.
