Manning Faces up to 136 Years in Prison
Private Bradley Manning, who leaked thousands of sensitive documents to WikiLeaks was convicted of six counts of violating the Espionage Act of 1917, and almost all of the other crimes he was charged with. He was acquitted of aiding the enemy, however. The military tribunal found that sending classified documents to a website does not count as helping out hostile forces. Its unclear how long Manning will spend behind bars, because sentencing will be a very long process. What do you all think about this conviction?
