Costa Concordia trial

By Duncan Mil

February 11, 2015 - Former Costa Concordia captain Francesco Schettino was sentenced to 16 years in prison on Wednesday for his role in the 2012 shipwreck, which killed 32 people off the Tuscan holiday island of Giglio.

A court in the town of Grosseto found him guilty of multiple manslaughter, causing a shipwreck and abandoning his passengers and crew.

The 54-year-old will not go to prison until the appeals process is completed, which can take years.
