Stonington widow: $300 fine not enough for captain in deadly boat crash
In 2015, Bacon’s yacht collided with Walter Krupinkski’s smaller boat off the Rhode Island coast. Krupinski, who was 81, was killed.
Bacon, of Cape May Court House, was found guilty in March of three charges brought by the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management. Each violation carries a maximum $100 fine. He has denied violating U.S. navigation rules.
Federal prosecutors and the Coast Guard said they are reviewing the crash.
