Chelsea Manning, convicted of providing classified national security data to WikiLeaks, was ordered Tuesday 21 days without recreation after she was found guilty of breaking prison rules. Manning, a transgender U.S. Army private, is currently serving a 35-year sentence for leaking sensitive information to the whistleblower website in 2010.
The 27-year-old intelligence analyst was punished for keeping a copy of Vanity Fair magazine, which had Caitlyn Jenner on its cover, and an expired tube of toothpaste, among other items, the Associated Press (AP) reported. She was also accused of disorderly conduct. According to charge sheets published by her supporters, Manning showed “disrespect” during a meal on July 2 and was "observed sweeping food onto the floor,” Agence France-Presse (AFP) reported.
Chase Strangio, Manning’s attorney from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), reportedly said in a statement that Manning was found guilty of all charges.
"She also will carry these infractions through her parole and clemency process and will be held longer in the more restrictive security facility where she is now incarcerated," Strangio said, according to AFP.
Manning will have limited access to the gym, library and outdoors. The maximum punishment she could have faced was indefinite solitary confinement, according to the AP.
Formerly known as Bradley, Manning is jailed in a maximum-security prison in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. She was convicted in 2013 of espionage and other offenses for providing over 700,000 sensitive documents to WikiLeaks while working in Iraq.
