  • Grandpa who dropped toddler from cruise ship will plead guilty

Chloe Wiegand died off the Puerto Rico coast last July when she fell from an 11th-floor window in the ship's dining hall. The defendant filed a movement yesterday afternoon expressing his intent to plead responsible and inquiring for a listening to date where by the Court docket might acknowledge his transform of plea.

In agreeing to a plea deal, the grandfather, 51, will avoid any jail time.

Anello has lodged his plea with the court according to news reports in Puerto Rico, although understands he will still have to appear before a judge to give it in person before sentencing.

Anello was charged previous year in Puerto Rico with negligent homicide in her death and initially pleaded not guilty.

The family's lawyer Michael Winkleman did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment. Puerto Rican authorities and Royal Caribbean claimed otherwise, hence the charges of negligence against the grandfather.

Chloe's parents, Kim and Alan Wiegand, told "Today" after her death last summer that they hoped to bring awareness and ensure such an accident doesn't happen to another family.

Less than a week later, he opened up to CBS This Morning about the tragedy.

However they say their sole motivation is to force Royal Caribbean to make their windows safer on the Freedom of the Seas so Chloe's horror plunge is never repeated.

"I wasn't drinking and I wasn't dangling her out of a window".

"In my experience, any elevated public place I've been with that much glass has always been a protective barrier", Anello said in the statement. "I was like, 'Oh my God'".

Winkleman said the grandfather put Chloe on the railing thinking she'd bang on the glass. "I was in complete disbelief", Anello said in Wednesday's statement.

"Both of those letters expressed how frightful it would have been if they had to deal with prosecution immediately after these unthinkable incidents, but I genuinely only think of Chloe".

Winkleman told PEOPLE after Anello was charged in October, "It's like pouring salt in [the family's] open wounds".

"We still maintain this was a tragic, preventable accident that never would have occurred if Royal Caribbean followed the industry-standard window fall prevention codes that are designed for the singular goal of preventing children from falling out of windows", he said in a statement.
