Reality Winner enters plea agreement in NSA leak case

Reality Winner, a U.S. Air Force veteran accused of leaking classified information about Russian cyberattacks waged during the 2016 White House race, entered a plea agreement Thursday in federal court.

Attorneys for Ms. Winner, 26, submitted a plea agreement on her behalf following an 18-minute telephone conference Thursday morning with U.S. Magistrate Judge Brian K. Epps in Augusta, Georgia, according to court documents.

The filing is not publicly accessible, but Ms. Winner plans to plead guilty at a change of plea hearing set for Tuesday morning, Department of Justice spokesman Ian Prior told The Associated Press.
