Law360, Chicago (August 6, 2013, 5:24 PM EDT) -- A military judge on Tuesday trimmed the maximum sentence for U.S. Army Pfc. Bradley Manning to 90 years in prison after finding that some of the charges against him for providing government secrets to WikiLeaks were duplicative for sentencing purposes, according to the group funding Manning’s defense.
The judge in the case, Army Col. Denise Lind, ruled during Manning’s sentencing hearing that various charges could be merged, cutting 46 years from his maximum potential sentence, the Bradley Manning Support Network said in a statement.
