GREENWICH - The president of a Stamford swimming pool company, charged in a 6-year-old Greenwich boy's drowning, has taken a deal to avoid jail time.

David Lionetti had been charged with manslaughter, which could have carried a 10-year sentence but instead he pleaded guilty yesterday to second-degree manslaughter.

Prosecutors say Lionetti recklessly caused Zachary Cohn's death because his company didn't install a required safety device that would have stopped the boy's arm from getting sucked into a powerful pump drain.
