- The commander of the Army Military District of Washington has approved the findings of the court-martial last year of WikiLeaker Chelsea Manning. Manning, who served as an intelligence analyst for the Army in Baghdad in 2009 and 2010 as Pfc.

She was tried last year at Fort Meade, found guilty of 20 offenses and sentenced to 35 years in a military prison. Maj. Gen. Jeffrey S.

After serving nearly 40 years in prison for a fatal shooting, Walter Lomax was released in 2006 amid questions about his trial. On Wednesday, he celebrated another milestone in his case, as prosecutors formally dropped the charges against him. Lomax, now 67, was sent to prison after being found guilty in the 1968 death of Robert L. Brewer, a night manager of a Brooklyn food market. A judge commuted his sentence eight years ago, citing problems with the evidence that led to his conviction.

A Maryland appeals court upheld former Anne Arundel County Executive John R. Leopold's convictions of misconduct Wednesday but struck down a part of his sentence that prevents him from running for office while on probation. Leopold was found guilty in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court of two counts of misconduct in January 2013, relating to ordering officers on his police detail and county employees to carry out personal and campaign tasks. Leopold's lawyers argued on appeal that he couldn't have known that his actions would be illegal because they aren't specifically prohibited in the law. They also challenged a provision of Leopold's sentence that barred him from running for public office while he serves probation.

Baltimore Circuit Judge Emanuel Brown ruled Thursday that veteran political consultant Julius Henson violated probation by running for an East Baltimore state Senate seat and sentenced him to four months in jail. But Brown suspended the sentence pending an appeal - and his decision effectively allows Henson to keep running in the meantime. Henson promptly told reporters he intends to do that. "I will continue to run," Henson told reporters outside the Clarence M. Mitchell Jr. Courthouse downtown.
