Wikileaks' Informant Bradley Manning Sentenced to 35 Years

Ad Feedback

The American soldier convicted of giving sensitive information to the anti-secrecy website Wikileaks has been sentenced to 35 years in prison.

Bradley Manning digitally copied and released more than 700,000 documents, including Iraq and Afghanistan battlefield reports and State Department cables, while working in Iraq.

He was found guilty last month of 20 crimes, including six violations of the Espionage Act.

But a military judge acquitted the 25-year-old of the most serious charge: aiding the enemy.

He ordered Manning's prison stay be reduced. He must serve a third of the sentence before he becomes eligible for parole.
