Jacob Brouch, a former JBER soldier, will spend several months behind bars after a judge sentenced him on weapons misconduct for his role in the Russian roulette death of his friend.
Brouch’s sentencing on Tuesday comes days after being found not guilty on April 26 for manslaughter and criminally negligent homicide in the death of his best friend Michael McCloskey.
The former soldiers were drinking and playing the deadly game, when McCloskey shot himself and died last year in March.
During the trial, prosecutors argued that Brouch was responsible for his friend's death, and but the jury disagreed.
Judge Greg Miller sentenced Brouch to 360 days with 240 suspended for time served, meaning Brouch will serve at 120 days behind bars.
