    Costa Concordia captain sentenced to 16 years in jail for disaster

    Costa Concordia captain sentenced to 16 years in jail for disaster

    ROME, Feb 11 (Reuters) - An Italian court convicted the former captain of the Costa Concordia cruise liner on Wednesday for his role in the 2012 shipwreck that killed 32 people and sentenced him to 16 years in prison.

    Francesco Schettino was commanding the vessel, a floating hotel as long as three football pitches, when it came too close to shore and hit rocks off the Tuscan holiday island of Giglio.

    Schettino was charged with multiple manslaughter, causing a shipwreck and abandoning ship in one of the highest-profile shipping disasters in recent years.

    However it is far from certain whether he will actually go to jail before the end of Italy's long appeals process, which can take years.

    Took long enough.
    I have CDO, it's like OCD but the letters are in alphabetical order like they should be.

    We were wondering about capital punishment for white collar bad guys this morning in another thread.

    OK. I did see that. I don't envision capital punishment for manslaughter though.

    In any case 16 years sounds okay for mass manslaughter.

    Looks like they figured 6 months per person.

    This is the thinker who said he slipped and fell into the lifeboat, right?

    He's about to start falling into the laps of prison inmates. He will make a fine wife, no doubt.
