Julian Assange Secures Plea Deal, Regains Freedom

Julian Assange reached a plea deal and is free

The founder of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, has reached a plea agreement with the United States justice system, which will allow him to be released after years of detention in the United Kingdom, according to court documents made public on Monday night.

Assange is being pursued by US authorities for revealing hundreds of thousands of confidential documents. He is required to appear in federal court in the Mariana Islands, a US territory in the Pacific, where he will plead guilty to “conspiracy to obtain and disclose information relating to national defense.”

Assange left Belmarsh maximum security prison on June 24, after spending 1901 days there. He was granted bail by the High Court in London and released at Stansted airport, where he boarded a plane.

It is worth noting that Assange will still need to appear in federal court to plead guilty and face any potential sentencing. The exact terms of his release are not yet clear.
