Walker Quoted on Reuters on Bradley Manning Sentencing

Jeffrey K. Walker, Assistant Dean for Transnational Programs and Adjunct Professor of Law, was quoted in this Reuters article on today’s Bradley Manning sentencing. On the length of Manning’s thirty-five year sentence for revealing classified government files, Professor Walker, an expert on military law, stated: “The government is looking for general deterrence of future Bradley Mannings. Thirty-five years is a pretty powerful message. I think they could have sent it with less than 35 years.” You can read the full article here.
