Captain Francesco Schettino, 54, has been found guilty of the fatal shipwreck of the Costa Concordia and has been sentenced to 16 years in prison for manslaughter.
Schettino notoriously abandoned the ship before many of the 4,200 passengers and crew had escaped when it was sinking off the western coast of Italy January 13, 2012.
In this case, the captain may not have gone down with the ship. But hopefully he will learn his lesson in the Davy Jones’ Locker of prisons.
With 32 lives lost after the Costa Concordia wrecked in 2012, the captain will pay dearly. Find out how many years in prison he was sentenced!
