An SAS sniper jailed for illegally possessing a gun is "excited" about meeting his wife tomorrow for the first time since he was sentenced over a week ago, his lawyer said today.
Sergeant Danny Nightingale will receive a visit from his wife and father at the Military Corrective Training Centre in Colchester.
Nightingale was sentenced to 18 months in military detention by a court martial after pleading guilty to possession of a prohibited firearm and ammunition.
His lawyer said:
The authorities at Colchester have been treating Sergeant Nightingale with great humanity and have allowed this visit between him and his wife and his father.
It's been an emotional time for the family. Mrs Nightingale is not speaking to anybody herself at present.
She's just exhausted with what's unfolded in the last 10 days.
Obviously the family are looking forward to the reunion tomorrow.
