Manning sentenced to 35 years in prison: He’s also receiving a dishonorable discharge, a loss of rank, and a forfeit of his pay. However, he will not be fined.
Updates when we get them.
UPDATE: Manning will be eligible for parole, but will be required to serve one-third of the sentence. With time served—1,293 days—counted against the 35-year total, that means he’ll be in prison for a minimum of eight more years. The sentence is a little more than half what the federal government asked for.
