Manning defense attorney recapping WikiLeaks case at RI law school where he teaches

The lawyer who defended Army Pvt. Chelsea Manning against charges of leaking classified information is discussing the court-martial at Roger Williams University Law School in Bristol, R.I.

Civilian attorney David Coombs speaks Wednesday at the school, where he has taught. Coombs also will take questions from students and reporters.

Manning is at Fort Leavenworth prison in Kansas serving a 35-year sentence for a July conviction on espionage, theft and other offenses. Manning sent more than 700,000 documents and some battlefield video to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks while working as an intelligence analyst in Iraq.

Manning contends she wanted to expose wrongdoing and provoke a policy debate.

Manning was previously known as Bradley Manning. She announced in August her desire to live as a woman and receive hormone therapy for gender identity disorder.
