FORT MEADE, M.D. – Army prosecutors are getting one last chance to prove Oklahoma Army Private Bradley Manning deserves a long prison sentence for disclosing classified information through WikiLeaks.

Witnesses could be called to discuss evidence from two mental health workers that Manning was “facing inner turmoil” over gender identity and isolation, which may have contributed to his decision to leak the documents.

Prosecutors could also present evidence that fights back against Manning’s statements Wednesday, apologizing to the people of the United States.

Manning faces up to 90 years in prison.
