Statement from Chelsea Manning’s Legal Team: Chelsea Manning Released After EDVA Grand Jury Probe Expires

Alexandria, VA — Judge Anthony Trenga today ordered Chelsea Manning’s release from confinement, after the apparent conclusion of the grand jury to which she had been subpoenaed, and before which she refused to testify. He further ordered that she pay $256,000 in fines which accrued each day she refused to cooperate with the grand jury. 

Needless to say we are relieved and ask that you respect her privacy while she gets on her feet.
