Closing arguments wrap in trial for former Ft. Drum soldier accused of leaking information to Wikileaks
Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – The closing arguments in the trial of a former Fort Drum soldier accused of leaking classified military information to the website Wikileaks wrapped on Friday.
Bradley Manning's attorneys disputed the claims made by prosecutors yesterday in their closing arguments.
The defense said Manning is not seeking attention, but he is willing to accept the price for his actions.
If convicted, Manning faces life in prison for the most serious charge of aiding the enemy.
Manning has already pleaded guilty to nearly a dozen lesser charges that carry a sentence of up to 20 years in prison.
