Five people were sentenced for their part in the Costa Concordia cruise ship disaster that killed 32 – but look likely to avoid jail. The four crew members and a company official received jail sentences of between 18 and 34 months after they pleaded guilty to multiple manslaughter, negligence and shipwreck.However, judicial sources said none of the five is likely to be jailed as the sentences of under two years were suspended and the longer ones may be appealed or replaced with community service.
