A court martial panel found retired warrant officer Paul Ravensdale guilty of four charges stemming from the death of Corporal Joshua Baker and the wounding of four other Canadian soldiers during a training accident in Afghanistan in 2010. He was given a six-month suspended sentence, fined two-thousand dollars and demoted to sergeant. Prosecutor Major Tony Tamburro said the verdict should send a message to make safety a first priority. (Ravensdale was leading a test of anti-personnel mines on a weapons range when one mine misfired.)
