En fin, que la liaron parda, pero creo que se les va la pelota o la tienen llena de pájaros. Erika, Prestige, Coral Sea, Hebei Spirit, …, el próximo igual acaban o acabamos pasándolo por la quilla, eso sí, en prime-time.

Prison Sentence for Cosco Busan pilot

Pilot Sentenced to Serve 10 Months in Federal Prison

WASHINGTON— John Joseph Cota, the pilot who caused the Cosco Busan, a 900-foot long container ship, to collide with the San Francisco Bay Bridge and discharge approximately 53,000 gallons of oil into San Francisco Bay, was today sentenced to serve 10 months in federal prison by U.S. District Court Judge Susan Illston for the Northern District of California, the Justice Department announced.

Cota, who was a licensed bar pilot at the time of the collision, gave commands that caused the 65,131-ton Hong Kong-registered ship to collide with the bridge on Nov. 7, 2007.

Cota was sentenced according to an agreement in which he pleaded guilty to negligently causing discharge of a harmful quantity of oil in violation of the Clean Water Act (CWA), as amended by the Oil Spill Act of 1990 – a law passed in the wake of the 1989 Exxon Valdez disaster – and to violating the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, by causing the death of protected species of migratory birds.
