FORT MEADE, Md. —

U.S. Army Pfc. Bradley Manning could spend the rest of his life in prison after a military judge found him guilty of espionage, theft and other charges for sending reams of classified material to WikiLeaks.

Army Col. Denise Lind acquitted Manning on Tuesday of the most serious charge he faced, aiding the enemy, which carried a possible penalty of up to life in prison. However, he still could face up to 136 years in prison after being convicted of the other charges.

Manning was convicted of 19 charges in all.

Lind deliberated for about 16 hours over three days before reaching her decision in a case that drew worldwide attention. Supporters hailed Manning as a whistleblower, while prosecutors called him an anarchist and a traitor.
