Former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning has been taken to the hospital following a suicide attempt on Wednesday (March 11).
“There was an incident at approximately 12:11 p.m. today at the Alexandria Adult Detention Center involving inmate Chelsea Manning,” Sheriff Dana Lawhorne said in a statement to CBS News. “It was handled appropriately by our professional staff and Ms. Manning is safe.”
If you don’t know, Chelsea has been jailed since May of last year, after she refused to testify before a grand jury investigating WikiLeaks.
Chelsea was first convicted in 2013 for leaking classified government and military documents to WikiLeaks.
Former President Barack Obama cut Chelsea‘s sentence short back in 2017.
