Just got sentenced to 35 years for his part in leaking classified information to Wikileaks.
He will likely do a third of his sentence, so 12 years. He gets credited for the time he has already served, which is some 3 years. So that is 9. There is an automatic appeal that he can waive, but an appeal can only help not harm. So maybe it gets knocked down to 25 years. A third of would be about 9 years… 3 of which he has already served. So he does 6 years.
Oh, and he has come out saying that he wants to live as a woman. His new name shall be Chelsea Manning.
He plans to begin hormone treatment immediately. This man is a genius. 5 years of prison while undergoing hormone treatment to become a woman is like sending a plump, gluttonous child to the Chocolate Factory. All on our dime. Brilliant.
