CUSHING, Okla.—An Oklahoma Army private has pleaded guilty to multiple charges linked to the biggest leak of government documents in U.S. history.
Pfc. Bradley Manning, 25, left a Ford Meade court Thursday shortly after the judge accepted 10 of his 12 guilty pleas of misusing classified information.
For those offenses, he faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.
Manning maintained his innocence on the most serious charge of aiding the enemy, which carries a lifetime prison sentence.
In June, he will face a court-martial on 12 other charges, including the charge of aiding the enemy.
