Reality Winner's trial set for October

The federal trial of 25-year-old Augusta NSA contractor Reality Leigh Winner will begin October 23.

The judge states that victor has no criminal record and only has one count against her so far.

Victor has been accused of leaking classified information about Russian Federation to the media.

Victor was arrested earlier this month, barely an hour after online publication the Intercept published a report containing a highly-classified NSA document on Russian interference during the US presidential election.

The security officer assigned to safeguarding the classified information in the case comes from a security firm in Washington, D.C.

The memo described a Russian cyberattack on a USA voting software supplier a year ago.

Attorneys discussed tuesday how classified information will be handled.

"The primary goal of the protective order is just to create parameters for us, so that if there's any type of information that is classified at any level, everyone knows what the rules of engagement will be", Nichols told CNN affiliate WRDW after the hearing.

Prosecutors anticipate having all of their discovery documentation filed by August 25.

Victor could face up to ten years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.
