Two paramedics have been given an 18-month conditional sentence for their role in the death of 19-year-old Yosif Al-Hasnawi.
The young man was suffering from a gunshot wound when Steven Snively and Christopher Marchant were called to help December 2, 2017.
Incorrectly assuming he had been shot by a BB gun, the paramedics did not rush to get Al-Hasnawi to hospital, where he died soon after from a gunshot wound.
In sentencing the pair the judge said the pair did not set out to harm or treat him negligently.
They will serve six-months at home; leaving only for medical emergencies or pre-approved appointments, followed by a curfew for the remaining 12-months, and complete 15-hours of community service.
Both were fired from their paramedic jobs in 2018.
