The soldier who helped Wikileaks publish classified diplomatic cables, Bradley Manning, should get a 60-year prison sentence, prosecutors told a military judge on Monday. That’s on the high-end of the 90-year range that’s possible for the various charges Manning was found guilty of.

After a military trial that lasted several weeks, Manning was convicted on most counts on July 30.

While he was found not guilty of “aiding the enemy,” the most serious charge he faced, he was found guilty of 20 other charges including espionage, theft, and computer fraud charges.
