Judge rules not to drop charges in Wikileaks case

OKLAHOMA CITY Okla_ A military judge ruled just a few hours ago on a motion to dismiss all charges against Private First Class Bradley Manning.

The charges will not be dropped, but the judge has agreed to take 112 days off the private's eventual sentence on the grounds that he was subjected to unlawful pretrial punishment.

Manning is the Crescent, Oklahoma man charged with sending reams of classified documents to the Wikileaks website. The 24-year-old former army intelligence analyst was trying to get the charges against him thrown out, arguing that the military held him in unduly harsh conditions for nine months to punish him after his 2010 arrest.
