Judge Accepts Soldier’s Guilty Pleas On 10 WikiLeaks Counts

A U.S. Army judge has accepted an offer by Pfc. Bradley Manning to plead guilty to violating military regulations. Prosecutors say they plan to move forward with an additional 12 charges against him.

Pfc. Bradley Manning admits to sending hundreds of thousands of Iraq and Afghanistan battlefield reports, State Department diplomatic cables and other files to WikiLeaks while working as an intelligence analyst in Baghdad.

An Army judge accepted the pleas to 10 charges at a hearing Thursday. Manning could face a maximum of 20 years on those charges alone.
