Judge Won't Dismiss Serious Charge In Manning Case

Posted: Updated:

FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) - A military judge is refusing to dismiss a charge that an Army private aided the enemy by giving reams of classified information to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks.
    
Col. Denise Lind ruled Thursday on the defense motion in the court-martial of Pfc. Bradley Manning at Fort Meade, near Baltimore.
    
It is the most serious charge Manning faces, punishable by up to life in prison without parole. Lind found there was enough prosecution evidence to proceed with the case.
    
Lind also refused to dismiss a computer fraud count.
    
Lind is still considering defense motions to acquit Manning of five theft counts.
    
Manning has pleaded guilty to reduced versions of some charges. He faces up to 20 years in prison for those offenses.
