As a military judge prepares to sentence Army Private first class Bradley Manning over the largest intelligence leak in United States history, prosecutors asked Monday for the WikiLeaks source to receive no fewer than 60 years behind bars.
Before closing arguments in the sentencing phase of Pfc. Manning’s court-martial came to a close Monday afternoon, US prosecutors asked Col. Denise Lind to send the convicted soldier to prison for “no less than 60 years.”
David Coombs, the lead civilian attorney for Pfc. Manning, asked Lind for "a sentence that allows him to have a life."
Manning would be able to apply for parole once one-third of that time is served.
