From today's Salisbury Journal:

DRUNKEN SOLDIER SPARED JAIL

A drunken gunner who was banned from going to Iraq after assaulting two soldiers in Salisbury has avoided being sent to jail.

Instead, L** B**** was ordered to perform 210 hours of community service as part of a community sentence for 12 months.
He was also ordered not to be drunk in a public place - and ordered to pay compensation to both soldiers.

Mr Richard William, defending, told south-east Wiltshire magistrates: "He had had far too much to drink."

Mr Williams added: "Afterwards, he was told he would not now be able to go out on operations in Iraq."

B**** ( 18 ) of the 19th Regiment of the Royal Artillery at Larkhill, admitted assaulting M****** G********, causing him actual bodily harm and common assault against J**** D*****.

He was ordered to pay £250 to Mr G and £100 to Mr D, and to pay £43 costs.


...And the message this sends out? - Bop your mate on the hooter after a few ales, cough up £393 and avoid spending Christmas in Mesopotamia! Sweet as a nut.

Or maybe as has been done before he will now be discharged as his community service and his failure to be able to deploy will probably have failed the Service Test. A good example of what could happen if we lose the Military Criminal Justioce System.
