Our buddy, Aunty Brat, sends the news that Danny Nightingale, the SAS trooper who was court martialed for possessing a weapon given to him by our Iraqi allies whom we discussed last month, had his sentence suspended by the Court Of Appeals;
Judges at the Court of Appeal cut Nightingale’s [18 month] sentence to 12 months and suspended it.
His wife Sally, 38, cried when the verdict was delivered.
Nightingale thanked her and his supporters for their “trust and support” after walking from the central London court.
So, I guess there is a measure of common sense left in some corners of the legal world.
