Ferry Pilot Pleads Guilty to Manslaughter in S.I. Crash
By MICHAEL LUO

The pilot of the Staten Island ferry that plowed into a maintenance pier last October pleaded guilty today to charges related to his role in the crash in which 11 people were killed, and to making false statements about his medical condition when he renewed his pilot's license.
The United States attorney for the Eastern District of New York, Roslynn R. Mauskopf, unsealed other indictments today related to the crash, one of the worst mass transit disasters in the city's history.
Today, the pilot of the ferry, Richard J. Smith, 55, appeared before Judge Edward R. Korman in federal court in Brooklyn and entered his plea of guilty to 11 counts of 'seaman's manslaughter.'"
