NSA Leaker Reality Winner to be back in court for a sentencing hearing

Crime News

NSA leaker Reality Winner will be back in court August 23rd for a sentencing hearing. 

Federal Prosecutors say Winner faces the longest sentence ever for a federal crime involving leaks to the media. 

She pled guilty in June to mailing classified documents to an online news outlet while working at Fort Gordon.

Winner’s plea deal calls for a prison sentence of five years and three months.

The Judge can, however, change that.

The charge carries a maximum penalty of 10 years.
