Crime News

Reality Winner has officially plead guilty to leaking classified documents. 

Winner has been behind bars since June of 2017 for leaking a classified report that contained top-secret information to a news organization.

Winner is a former active duty member of the U.S. Air Force and had been working in Augusta at Fort Gordon as a government contractor when the documents were released. 

As part of a plea deal, Winner has agreed to a reduced sentence where she could serve up to 63 months in prison along with 3 years supervision. 

The sentencing hearing will not be scheduled until the judge has had time to look over and approved the pre-sentencing report based on Winners statement she gave in court admitting to the crime.
