Cal­i­for­nia dive boat cap­tain’s neg­li­gence led to a dead­ly fire in 2019, claim­ing 34 lives. Jer­ry Boy­lan, 70, was sen­tenced to 4 years in prison for his role in the dis­as­ter, which marked the worst mar­itime acci­dent in recent US his­to­ry.

Boy­lan was con­vict­ed of sea­man’s manslaugh­ter after a jury found him respon­si­ble for safe­ty fail­ures that con­tributed to the fire. 

The judge acknowl­edged Boy­lan’s regret but high­light­ed the impor­tance of safe­ty reg­u­la­tions and the high cost of neg­li­gence in the mar­itime industry.
