Italy (WHAS11) -- An Italian Court has accepted guilty pleas from five workers on manslaughter and negligence charges related to the January 2012 shipwreck involving the Costa Concordia Cruise Ship.

The cruise line's crisis coordinator received two years and 10 months in prison, which is the highest sentence. The plea bargains are separate from the trial of the Costa Concordia's Captain, who is charged with manslaughter and abandoning ship.

Thirty-two people were killed in the shipwreck. The ship remains capsized off the Tuscan Coast.
