They're covering it right now on MSNBC. He is eligible for parole, good conduct & time served. He was knocked down a rank (why would this matter?), dishonorably discharged and loses all military pay, pension etc.
Pfc. Bradley Manning, the soldier who leaked hundreds of thousands of secret government documents, was sentenced by a military judge Wednesday to 35 years in prison.
The sentence was imposed by Army Col. Denise Lind. Manning will be eligible for parole.
Manning, 25, has said he was disillusioned by an American foreign policy bent on “killing and capturing people” when he released the documents, including battlefield reports and diplomatic cables, to the anti-secrecy site WikiLeaks in 2010.
