Julian Assange Gets One Year In Jail

(Newser) – Raising a fist in the air as he arrived, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange entered a London courtroom Wednesday to find out his fate for skipping bail in 2012 to avoid getting extradited to Sweden over rape allegations, reports Al Jazeera.

On Thursday, Assange—who was arrested last month at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London after Ecuador yanked back his asylum—is set to appear at a second hearing concerning extradition to the US over a hacking conspiracy charge.
