Italian Court Jails Five in Cruise Ship Disaster

Saturday, 20 July 2013 06:27 AM EDT

GROSSETO, Italy — An Italian court on Saturday accepted plea bargains for five suspects in the Costa Concordia cruise ship disaster, under which the accused will serve prison sentences ranging from six months to two years and 10 months, media reported.

The five include Roberto Ferrarini, the director of ship owner Costa Crociere's crisis unit, and Jacob Rusli Bin, the luxury liner's Indonesian helmsman, as well Captain Francesco Schettino's deputy and two other crew members.

Schettino, who is accused of multiple manslaughter and abandoning ship, is currently the only one standing trial for the deadly accident off Giglio island in Tuscany which left 32 people dead in January 2012.
