Manning, whose name was formerly Bradley Manning, was convicted of 20 counts, including six violations of the Espionage Act.

The information Manning disclosed included low-level battlefield reports from Iraq and Afghanistan, Guantanamo prison camp detainee profiles and USA diplomatic correspondence.
