The Marine Corps reports (but the corps buried the lede — be sure to read the second graf):

CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. (January 24, 2012) – The military judge in the SSgt Frank G. Wuterich Haditha court-martial, Lt.Col. David Jones, gave his sentence ruling as the case concluded today. Wuterich is sentenced to 90 days of confinement and reduction to private (E-1).

Per the terms of the pre-trial agreement, the convening authority disapproved any adjudged confinement and therefore SSgt Wuterich will not serve any of the confinement sentence.

LtGen Thomas Waldhauser, Commander, Marine Corps Forces Central Command will make a final adjudication on the sentence once he has fully reviewed the case.
