Pennetta's mother convicted of crime after farm accident

Tuesday, December 06, 2011 /by
Flavia Pennetta’s mother, Concetta, has been sentenced to one year in prison for an involuntary manslaughter charge stemming from a fuel explosion incident at the family’s farm. Pennetta and another man who worked on the farm were also ordered to pay 150,000 Euros to the victim's family. Apparently, the victim died when two fuel trucks exploded at the farm while he was in one of them. Italian newspapers say that Concetta Pennetta will appeal the verdict. In Italy, people do not generally go to prison for sentences of less than two years.
