Why am I not surprised? “The grandfather of an 18-month-old girl who fell to her death from the open window of a Royal Caribbean cruise ship last year pleaded guilty Thursday to negligent homicide.”

[quote]Michael Winkleman, an attorney for the Wiegand family, said Thursday that the plea deal means that Anello, who lives in South Bend, Indiana, avoids jail time and can serve probation in his home state.
If a non-family member did this, he'd been in the can for the rest of his life.
Probation? For killing a kid?

Yes, accidents do happen, but it is at a minimum criminally negligent to hold a squirmy 18 month old out an 11th floor window.

I wonder if RC will bother to fight this. The cruise industry is hard hit. Would they or the insurers pay for attorneys fees and costs? What would they hope to get in a countersuit? The family doesn't have money.

He knowingly dangled the kid put the open window. As r18 said, he's on film sticking his head out said window before he did it.

Royal Carib should fight it tooth and nail. Did you read the article? The mother is still blaming the cruise line. I suppose she has to in order to live with it. But who needs these idiots being the reason for all cruise windows to be sealed shut so no future drunken idiot holds a baby out a window and drops it.

I'd like to take the opportunity to remind everyone that Grampy was only 50 years old when this happened. He's 50 in most or all of the photos.

"But because the plea agreement includes no jail time and no admission of facts, it was decided the plea deal is in the best interests of the family so that they can close this horrible chapter and turn their focus to mourning Chloe and fighting for cruise passenger safety by raising awareness about the need for all common carriers to adhere to window fall prevention laws designed to protect children from falling from windows," the lawyer said in a statement.

His brain probably replays those few moments over and over, and he has no choice but to watch. If he drank a lot before, he'll probably turn to alcohol even harder now.

That probably has a lot to do with the slap on the wrist, r41. No matter how dumb or deplorable this guy is, he presumably loved his granddaughter and now and until he’s dead he lives with the fact that he caused her death, preceded by moments of terror.

If he was drunk enough, he might not be able to remember any of it.
If he wasn’t that drunk, then, well.... it’s not impossible he just dropped her on purpose. In which case it probably wouldn’t keep him up at night.

As for R43, I'm sick of that excuse. Every time a parent, guardian or family accidentally causes the death of a child, everyone says "the guilt is enough". Maybe if these stupid fucks who kill their kids accidentally serve some hard time, other stupid fucks would be more careful.
