That is the reporting from the courtroom in Ft. Meade this AM, where the judge was expected to announce his sentence at 10AM today. The prosecution asked for 60 years, the defense asked for 25. He’ll also be dishonorably discharged from the Army.
Also: “Manning’s sentence will automatically be sent to the Army Court of Criminal Appeals,” The New York Times adds. “Before the next phase can begin, the entire court-martial proceedings must be turned into an official transcript, which both the defense and prosecution, as well as the judge, must approve; that process is expected to take considerable time. Pretrial hearings started in 2012, and the trial itself began in early June.”
