Bradley E. Manning, the soldier convicted of leaking a trove of classified documents, was sentenced to 35 years in prison Wednesday for the largest public breach of secret data in U.S. history, sparking a debate over the length of his prison term and whether he could ever win an early release.
U.S. Army Pfc. Bradley Manning was acquitted of aiding the enemy — the most serious charge he faced — but was convicted of espionage, theft and other charges Tuesday, more than three years after he spilled secrets to WikiLeaks.
A military court Tuesday convicted Army Pfc. Bradley Manning of violating the Espionage Act for leaking hundreds of thousands of classified documents to WikiLeaks, a verdict that legal analysts say likely will have a chilling effect on others considering revealing government secrets.
A military judge on Thursday accepted the terms under which an Army private would plead guilty to seven charges for sending classified documents to WikiLeaks. Later, the accused soldier testified that he felt like a doomed, caged animal after he was arrested in Baghdad.
A military judge rejected a defense motion Thursday to consolidate some of the charges against an Army private accused in the biggest leak of government secrets in U.S. history.
An Army private declined to enter a plea Thursday to charges he engineered the biggest leak of classified information in U.S. history.
The military judge overseeing Manning's court-martial, Army Col. Denise Lind, said she would announce her sentence for the 25-year-old private at 10 a.m. Wednesday.
