Bradley Manning Pleads Guilty
Bradley Manning has pleaded guilty to ten counts in the Wikileaks case, and faces up to 20 years in prison.
He is expected to be sentenced to 20 years in prison after his conviction on charges related to the misuse of classified information. He is scheduled to stand trial in June on 12 more serious charges, including aiding the enemy and espionage. A conviction on those probably would lead to a life sentence.
In pleading guilty, Manning read from a 35 page statement explaining his motives.
