Verdict Likely Tuesday in WikiLeaks Court-Martial
Bradley Manning could find out as early as tomorrow afternoon whether he will be convicted of aiding the enemy — a crime punishable by life in prison.
The judge says she expects to announce her verdict tomorrow in Manning’s court-martial for sending more than 700,000 government documents to the anti-secrecy website Wikileaks.
The 25-year-old also faces 20 other counts, including espionage, computer fraud and theft.
In closing arguments last week, the defense portrayed Manning as a naive whistleblower who wanted to expose war crimes. Prosecutors call him an anarchist hacker and a traitor.
