Army Pfc. Bradley Manning sentenced to 35 years in prison on Wednesday in the WikiLeaks case.

FOX News Radio's Jared Halpern reports from Fort Meade, Maryland:

Bradley Manning has been sentenced to 35 years in confinement plus a reduction in rank, forfeiture of pay and a dishonorable discharge from the U.S. Army. That the sentence handed down by a military judge after finding Bradley Manning guilty of 20 counts, including six espionage related crimes. All related to the 2010 disclosure of hundreds of thousands of classified documents to the website WikiLeaks.

Prosecutors asked the judge to sentence Bradley Manning to 60 years, calling the Private a traitor to his country who betrayed his nation's trust. Defense attorneys had asked for 25 years, saying Manning was remorseful and understood his actions did put the U.S. in danger.
