South Korea Ferry Captain Gets 36 Years in Prison
The captain of the South Korean ferry that sank in April, killing more than 300 people, was convicted Tuesday of professional negligence resulting in death and sentenced to 36 years in prison for his role in one of the nation’s worst maritime disasters. The ship’s chief engineer received a 30-year sentence after being found guilty of murder. He was steering the ferry when it took a sharp turn and lost its balance; the court specifically found he abandoned two workers who were injured and couldn’t evacuate. Many of those aboard were high school students.
