Manning to ask Obama for pardon, will pay ‘high price’ if not granted

Bradley Manning’s defense team will file a pardon request to US president Barack Obama early next week, or will ask to commute the Private’s sentence.

A US military judge on Tuesday sentenced Army Pfc. Bradley Manning to 35 years in prison.

Manning will be credited with the 1,294 days he spent in pre-trial confinement plus an additional 112 days.

He was also dishonorably discharged, saw his rank reduced to private from private first class and was forced to forfeit all pay and benefits.

No additional fine, however, was levied against him.

Bradley Manning will be eligible for parole in seven years, attorney says.
