Sgt. Blackman's sentence reduced to 7 years

Royal Courts of Justice, London
The Court Martial Appeal Court today resentenced Royal Marines Sgt. Alexander Blackman to seven years imprisonment, following the court's earlier decision to sustain a conviction only of manslaughter, vice murder. He may be released soon given the normal policy of release after service of half the sentence. The court's sentencing decision can be found here. The court also released its reasons for judgment on an application by the media for the release of video clips. That can be found here.
