Convicted Wikileaks Soldier Doing Well in Prison

BALTIMORE (AP) - A lawyer for Army Pvt. Chelsea Manning says the soldier is doing well as she goes through the indoctrination process at Fort Leavenworth.

David Coombs says on his blog Thursday that he was able to speak with Manning, previously known as Bradley Manning, while she goes through the three-week indoctrinations. Coombs says inmates are not usually allowed to have outside contact during that time, but the U.S. Disciplinary Barracks made an exception for Manning.

Coombs says Wednesday was the first time he talked with Manning since she was sentenced to 35 years for leaking mountains of classified material to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks.

The lawyer says Manning has made friends and is grateful for the support for her decision to live as a woman.
