WikiLeaks: Bradley Manning was treated improperly in lockup, judge rulesSubmitted by AnAppealToHeavenWash on Tue, 01/08/2013 - 21:17
But the military court declined to throw out the case against former Army Pfc. Bradley Manning, who faces trial for allegedly facilitating the largest leak of classified documents in US history.
A military judge ruled on Tuesday that a former Army intelligence analyst accused of leaking hundreds of thousands of sensitive US documents to WikiLeaks was subject to improper treatment during a portion of his pretrial detention in a US Marine Corps lockup.
The judge, US Army Col. Denise Lind, said she would give former analyst Pfc. Bradley Manning credit for 112 days of time served off any potential future sentence.
But Judge Lind refused a defense request that she throw out all or part of the charges against Manning to punish the government for its misconduct.
