CEO, Pool Company Plead Guilty in Greenwich Boy’s Drowning

April 13, 2011 

STAMFORD — A pool company president expressed remorse Wednesday in state Superior Court as he pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of criminally negligent homicide stemming from the 2007 drowning death of a 6-year-old Greenwich boy.

David Lionetti, 55, also entered a guilty plea on behalf of his company, Stamford-based Shoreline Pools Inc., to the charge of second-degree manslaughter, a felony.

Lionetti was initially charged with second-degree manslaughter in 2008 after Zachary Cohn became entrapped in a pool drain in the backyard of his Greenwich home and died.

Lionetti, who faced 10 years in prison, will serve a suspended one-year prison term followed by three years of probation as a result of his plea to the reduced, misdemeanor
