During the course of the court martial, Prosecutor Timothy Cray accused Sergeant Nightingale of making a "series of mistakes" and of changing his story:
No soldier, no matter what his experience is or what unit he is attached to, is above the law.
On the specific facts alleged - that is, the defendant's attitude to the retention of arms and ammunition - is that he made a series of mistakes that put the public at risk and that is why he now comes before this court martial.
No matter how he tries to deny it, the gun and ammunition were there in his bedroom because he put them there and he kept them there.
