FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) - A military judge says she'll announce on Wednesday the sentence for Army Pfc. Bradley Manning, who gave reams of classified information to WikiLeaks.
Army Col. Denise Lind said Tuesday she was still deliberating but would announce the sentence at 10 a.m. Wednesday.
Manning faces up to 90 years in prison, but prosecutors have asked the judge to sentence him to 60 years.
Manning's defense didn't recommend a specific amount of time, but suggested he should spend no more than 25 years in prison.
Manning was convicted last month of 20 counts, including six violations of the Espionage Act.
