After one year of tears and legal battles, the grandfather, Salvatore Anello from Indiana in America, will not serve any jail time. 

"This decision was an incredibly difficult one for Sam and the family, but because the plea agreement includes no jail time and no admission of facts, it was decided the plea deal is in the best interests of the family so that they can close this horrible chapter and turn their focus to mourning Chloe and fighting for cruise passenger safety," the family's attorney said according to CBS News.

The grandfather dropped his ‘not guilty’ plea "to help end part of this nightmare for my family, if possible."

We wish the family strength!
