Default Costa Concordia: Five Guilty Of Manslaughter

Well I guess the title tells half the story, the 5 concerned here are

The crisis co-ordinator for Costa Crociere, Roberto Ferranini, who could serve two years and 10 months.
The ship's hotel director who was sentenced to two and a half years.
Plus two bridge officers and a helmsman who were given suspended sentences from between one year eight months to one year 11 months.

Meanwhile the Captain, Francesco Schettino, has asked for tests to be carried out on the cruise liner's wreckage to determine why electrical and other systems failed.
Looks like his lawyers are exploring every avenue to prevent blame resting with him.
