Guards testify against OK Army private | News
OKLAHOMA CITY—Defense attorneys for an Oklahoma Army private who is accused of leaking classified information to the public are calling for all charges to be dismissed.
Pfc. Bradley Manning is charged with sending hundreds of thousands of secret documents to the anti-secrecy website, Wikileaks.
Saturday, former guards at the Marine Corps. Brigade testified against Manning.
Manning claims his nine months in isolation was illegal punishment and the case should be dismissed.
However, the guards claim the restrictions were in place to prevent Manning from hurting himself.
He currently faces 22 counts, including aiding the enemy and violating the Espionage Act.
If convicted, he could be sentenced to life in prison.
