Sentencing to take account of Nightingale's 'fine record'

Colonel Charles Barnett, from the Services Prosecuting Authority, said outside the court:

Sgt Nightingale has now had the trial which he requested, which is his right to seek. He has now been convicted by the board.

His fine record as a soldier is a matter that will no doubt be considered carefully when the board considers his sentence.
