FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) - A one-time computer hacker who told authorities Pfc. Bradley Manning was giving military information to WikiLeaks is testifying at the soldier's court-martial.

Adrian Lamo is a convicted hacker. Lamo has said Manning confided to him in May 2010 that he was the leaker. He took the stand Tuesday.

Manning is on trial for giving hundreds of thousands of documents to the secret-spilling website WikiLeaks.

He has pleaded guilty to charges that could bring 20 years behind bars. But the military has pressed ahead with a court-martial on more serious charges, including aiding the enemy. That charge carries a potential life sentence.

Manning's trial started Monday.
