Julian Assange Reaches Plea Deal with U.S. That Avoids Jail Time

by Misty Severi


Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has reached a plea deal with the United States on Monday that would allow him to avoid any time in prison, according to new court documents.

Assange, who was facing up to 175 years in prison if convicted of his crimes, agreed to plead guilty to a felony charge related to his company’s mass release of classified documents, according to CNN.

The plea deal would seek a 62-month sentence, which would count as time served because he was imprisoned in London while fighting an extradition to the U.S. He would then be allowed to return home to Australia.
