Man convicted over skyscraper stunt
A man known as Spider Dan has been convicted of two misdemeanours stemming from his Labour Day ascent of San Francisco's 60-story Millennium Tower.
City District Attorney George Gascon announced that a jury found 55-year-old Daniel Goodwin guilty of public nuisance and obstructing arrest.
The judge dismissed an additional charge of trespassing.
Goodwin spent about four hours on September 6 scaling the residential high-rise, aided by suction cups. He ignored authorities' repeated commands to come down.
Goodwin testified that he wanted to call attention to what he sees as a national lack of preparedness to fight skyscraper fires.
He is scheduled for sentencing on February 1. He could face a year in county jail and various fines.
