Assange sentenced in London

A London court has sentenced WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to 50 weeks in a British prison for violating the conditions of his bail.

The sentence was announced today at the Southwark Crown Court.

His sentencing comes a day before an extradition hearing in London related to separate charges in the United States of conspiring to hack a government password, the Washington Post reported.

The judge stressed that Assange could request early parole after serving half of the term if he did not commit any other violations.
