In a case that has pitted the government against one of its own, Private First Class Bradley Manning was found guilty of six counts of espionage and five counts of theft for leaking thousands of classified government documents and some battlefield videos to Wikileaks, a website that aims for complete transparency in the world.

Sentencing of Manning, a native of Crescent, Oklahoma, will begin Wednesday.

He did not get convicted of aiding the enemy, the most serious charge. Still, Manning could face more than 100 years in prison, according to reports.

In a statement, the Manning family wrote, “While we are obviously disappointed in today’s verdicts, we are happy that Judge Lind agreed with us that Brad never intended to help America’s enemies in any way.”
