After being held in custody for over 17 months, former Army intelligence analyst Bradley Manning will finally see the inside of a court as his Article 32 pretrial hearing is scheduled for December 16 at Fort Meade, Maryland.

The hearing is expected to last five days. Manning stands accused of multiple charges of computer fraud, theft of public property or records, transmitting defense information (thus violating the Espionage Act) and causing the stolen information to be published online.

He is also facing one charge of aiding the enemy - a charge that can end up in a capital punishment. But, according to Wired, the government has previously stated that it will not be asking for that. If Manning gets convicted of all the charges laid against him, though, he could end up in prison for life.
