FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) - A military judge is hearing closing arguments in Bradley Manning's sentencing hearing in the WikiLeaks case.
Col. Denise Lind says she'll hear the summations Monday at Maryland's Fort Meade before deliberating on the soldier's sentence for giving a mountain of classified information to the anti-secrecy group.
Manning faces up to 90 years in prison for his convictions on 20 counts, including six violations of the federal Espionage Act.
Prosecutors presented evidence that the leaked information put an undisclosed number of people overseas at risk of harm. The State Department helped some of them move, even to other countries, for their safety.
Manning says he's sorry his actions caused harm. His attorneys presented witnesses who said he was under great stress, due largely to his gender identity confusion in the "don't ask, don't tell" era.
