Manning Lawyer Gives More Details On Gender Change

Posted: Updated:

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A lawyer says the Army private convicted in the Wikileaks case wants estrogen treatments that would promote breast development and other female characteristics, which she'd be willing to pay for, while she's incarcerated at the all-men military prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kan.
    
Attorney David Coombs told The Associated Press on Monday that Army Pvt. Chelsea Manning hoped the military prison "will simply do the right thing" based on their request for hormone treatment so the soldier won't have to sue in the military or civilian court.
    
Coombs said at this point, the soldier previously known as Bradley Manning doesn't want sex-reassignment surgery and expects to be kept with men in prison where she's serving time for leaking mountains of classified material the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks.
