Judge to Decide Ferry Crash Sentencing

Monday, January 09, 2006
Questions about the 2003 ferry crash that killed 11 people are expected to be answered today. A judge will decide whether to accept a probation officer's recommendation that ex-ferry director Patrick Ryan and ferry pilot Richard Smith be sentenced to six months or less in jail. The judge will also decide whether damages against the city in the fatal crash can be limited under a 19th century maritime law. New York City could face tens of millions of dollars in civil judgements.
