Manning has been acquitted of aiding the enemy when he shared classified documents on US military actions in Iraq and Afghanistan with WikiLeaks, but he was convicted of lesser charges, including espionage. Military Judge Col. Denise Lind issued her verdict early Tuesday afternoon. She found Manning guilty of five espionage counts, five theft charges, a computer fraud charge and other military infractions. The aiding the enemy charge was the most severe and carried the possibility of life in prison. Manning, though, isn't likely to avoid prison time. His sentence hearing will begin on July 31, 2013.
