1 post in this topic


LEAVENWORTH, Kansas -- The transgender soldier imprisoned in Kansas for sending classified information to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks now faces possible punishment for offenses stemming from a suicide attempt, a civil rights group said Thursday.

The American Civil Liberties Union said in a statement that Chelsea Manning, 28, received a document from Army officials Thursday saying she's being investigated for "administrative offenses," including "conduct which threatens," related to her July 5 suicide attempt at the military prison at Fort Leavenworth, where she's serving a 35-year sentence.

Manning's lawyers have not detailed how she tried to kill herself.
