The sentencing of former SAS sniper Danny Nightingale was adjourned today pending a Court of Appeal judgment on the sentencing powers of the court.
Judge Advocate General Jeff Blackett said he would release Sergeant Nightingale on bail while a decision was made.
Sergeant Nightingale was previously sentenced to 18 months' military detention at an earlier trial. This was reduced to 12 months' imprisonment, suspended for a year, on appeal.
