前渔船船长排污向太平洋排放油污水罪名成立 Ex-Fishing Boat Captain Guilty of Dumping Oily Waste into Pacific

美国一名前渔船船长因故意将没有处理过的渔船油污水直接排放到太平洋面临6年监禁。 华盛顿州西雅图市的陪审团星期四认定前渔船船长福克斯违反了联邦政府禁止渔船排放污染环境物的法律。 福克斯在被宣判时可能还会面临最高25万美元的罚款。 福克斯所在渔船的一名船员在福克斯排放污水时拍摄了录像,并将录像交给检察官。 司法部说,福克斯的父亲去年也因为违反环保法律而被定罪。 A former fishing boat captain is facing up to six years in prison for deliberately dumping oily slops into the Pacific Ocean. A jury in Seattle convicted Randall Fox on Thursday for violating the federal Act to Prevent Pollution from Ships. He also faces a $250,000 fine when he is sentenced. A crewmember on his boat videotaped Fox dumping waste and turned the tape over to prosecutors. The Justice Department says Fox's father was also convicted of a pollution- related crime last year.
