Staff Sgt. david BramA U.S. Army sergeant, the eleventh "Kill Team" soldier convicted of crimes in the widest-ranging prosecution of war crimes in the ten years of the Afghanistan War, was sentenced Friday to five years in jail for misconduct.

David Bram, 27, was found guilty on all but two of nine counts including solicitation to commit murder, conspiracy to commit assault and trying to derail the investigation into the slaying of innocent Afghans, reports the Associated Press.

Bram's crimes involved the beating of subordinate soldier, Private Justin Stoner, who had exposed the rampant use of hashish among U.S. troops in Afghanistan and led Army investigators to uncover the heinous crimes of the 'Kill Team," which involved the murdering of villagers for sport.

The five-soldier jury returned their guilty verdict after 90 minutes of deliberation, but acquitted Bram of abusing Afghan detainees and planting an AK-47 near a corpse after a shooting in January 2010.
