A Redmond man was sentenced to 120 days in federal prison and three years of supervised release related to a 2016 hash oil explosion at his home, according to a news release from the Oregon U.S. Attorney’s Office.
William E. Wild Sr. pleaded guilty in August to one count of endangering human life, officials said. Wild, a first-time offender, admitted to smoking a cigarette when an explosion occurred in a detached garage where he illegally made butane hash oil on Dec. 12, 2016, at his home at 2154 SW 24th St., officials said.
Investigators seized 57 mature marijuana plants, several pipe bombs, scales, packaging materials and containers, ledgers containing drug amounts and approximately $20,000 in cash from Wild’s home, officials said.
Wild suffered burns and smoke inhalation in the explosion, while his 18-year-old daughter was flown to Portland for treatment, officials said.
A restitution hearing is scheduled for Feb. 7.
