Tuesday, a military judge decided the fate of Bradley Manning, a U.S. Army private accused of spilling thousands of secret documents and classified videos to the website WikiLeaks.
Manning, 25, faced a possible life sentence for aiding the enemy. He faced an additional 20 counts of espionage, computer fraud and theft.
The verdict, not guilty of aiding the enemy but guilty of five counts of espionage, in the court-martial came down shortly after 1 p.m. at Ft. Meade, near Baltimore.
Manning waived his right to trial by jury. The case was heard by judge Col. Denise Lind.
