FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) - Prosecutors have called their final witness in the sentencing phase of Army Private First Class Bradley Manning's court-martial.
The government called the witness Friday to testify in a closed session about the classified impact on long-range battle plans of the government secrets Manning disclosed through WikiLeaks. The prosecution will rest its case once the witness has finished testifying.
The defense is set to open its case Monday in the sentencing hearing at Fort Meade, near Baltimore.
The soldier from Crescent, Oklahoma faces up to 90 years in prison for disclosing reams of classified information through the anti-secrecy website.
He claims he leaked the material to expose war crimes and provoke discussion about U.S. military and diplomatic affairs.
