The trial of Bismarck Dinius is over, he was acquitted by the jury on 2 counts and the 3rd was dropped by the disgraced district attorney.

The story by Elizabeth Larsen who followed this trial from the day of Lynn Thornton's death which the result of an off-duty policeman ignoring the rules of navigation.

I am happy to read that the fellow was acquitted, but remain disgusted that he was prosecuted in the first place. *The ADA in this case should be ashamed of himself for prosecuting the wrong person.
In 1986 we went cruising for a few years. After 20 years and 50+ countries and several oceans, we are STILL "cruising for a few years".
