TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — After being sentenced to 35 years in prison for leaking classified documents to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks, Bradley Manning could be headed for hard time at Fort Leavenworth in Kansas, home to the American military's most famous prison. Inmates there are highly restricted, graveyard work shifts are common and jobs pay just pennies per hour. The judge today (WED) didn't say where Manning would serve his time. But a spokeswoman for the Military District of Washington said Manning would likely go to the United States Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth, the only military prison for service members sentenced to 10 or more years of confinement. She says if space there is limited, military prisoners can be sent to a civilian federal prison. Manning has already spent time in Leavenworth, alongside some of the military's worst criminals.
