FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) - Closing arguments are scheduled in a pretrial hearing for an Army private accused of sending classified information to WikiLeaks information website.
The summations Tuesday follow 10 days of testimony at Fort Meade, near Baltimore. Pfc. Bradley Manning argues that the case should be dismissed because he suffered illegal pretrial punishment during nine months in the Marine Corps brig in Quantico, Va.
The government contends the tight restrictions were to keep Manning safe and prevent him from killing or hurting himself. He was confined at least 23 hours a day, sometimes with no clothing, in a 6-by-8-foot cell.
The 24-year-old native of Crescent, Okla., is charged with 22 offenses, including aiding the enemy. That offense carries a maximum penalty of life in prison.
