Anello’s lawyer said his client will serve his probation back home in Indiana.
Anello was with his family aboard the Royal Caribbean Cruise ship Freedom of the Seas in July 2019 when his granddaughter fell to her death.
He said he had not been drinking and was not dangling the toddler out of the window, as some reports claimed shortly after the incident.

The girl’s parents have a pending lawsuit against Royal Caribbean.
