Capt. Francesco Schettino, former captain of the cruise ship Costa Concordia, was sentenced to 16 years in prison on Friday in Italy. The highest Italian court upheld the original ruling from 2015 when he was found guilty of manslaughter, causing a shipwreck and abandoning the passengers. Thirty-two people were killed in the 2012 shipwreck off the Tuscan island of Giglio.

Capt. Schettino has been free during the appeals process.
