Crewe SAS soldier Danny Nightingale has conviction for 'war trophy' pistol overturned
A CREWE SAS sniper who was jailed for illegally possessing a 'war trophy' pistol has today had his conviction overturned
Sergeant Danny Nightingale was sentenced to 18 months detention in November by a judge sitting in a military court after he admitted possessing a Glock 9mm pistol and more than 300 rounds of ammunition.
This was later reduced to a suspended sentence after an appeal at the Court Martial Appeal Court in London before today's decision to overturn the original conviction.
Sgt Nightingale, who said he was given the gun as a present while serving in Iraq, will now face a retrial.
