What's next for Bradley Manning? Prison time could add up for convicted leaker

By Ben Brumfield and Barbara Starr

As Pfc. Bradley Manning's sentencing phase began Wednesday morning, the convicted leaker has already tallied 1,274 days behind bars.

The question now is how many more of the potential 136 years he'll serve.

The military will give Manning credit for each of his 1,162 days of pre-trial confinement, plus the judge, Col. Denise Lind, credited Manning with an additional 112 days for the harsh treatment he suffered while being held at a Marine Corps Base Quantico brig.

The defense has also filed motions to have four of the charges on which he was found guilty merged into two. Lind isn't expected to rule on that motion before Friday.

Lind acquitted Manning of the most grievous charge of aiding the enemy. Had she convicted him of that one charge, he could have spent life in prison without the possibility of parole.

    I think he should be released based on time served, and be given the opportunity to have his discharge upgraded to General under Honorable in the near future if he does nothing further that could be viewed as detrimental to the US Government.

      The fact that this young man is being persecuted for what he did is a total ignominy to say the least, Phunnie boy! He should never have been prosecuted in the first place while those filthy creeps who murdered several people from their Apache helicopter in Iraq back in 2007 are still scott free is quite ludicrous!!! You must agree with me.

        George,I would have agreed with you in 1970s or even in 80s, but after 911, my views of the muslim countries are not the same.

    The real traitors to the people and nation are the lawmakers in Washington. Those that collect pay and benefits and DO NOTHING. Lawmakers that continue to block Obama and progress of this nation. They are the true traitors. They got elected just to do nothing.
