The man behind the largest classified document leak case in US history is scheduled to speak in his own defense today.
Private First Class Bradley Manning will take the stand during the sentencing phase of his court-martial.
Manning was convicted of stealing and disseminating 750,000 pages of classified documents and videos to Wikileaks.
The counts against him included Violations of the Espionage Act.
He was found guilty of 20 of the 22 charges against him.
He could face up to 90 years in prison if the judge imposes the maximum sentence.
The judge, however, has already shown she's not inclined to throw the book at him.
