Fearful or Just Arrogant?

He appeared confused with the American legal system and demanded to know why no evidence had been presented to him. Further, he stated the attacks on him and WikiLeaks were nothing more than ''decapitation attacks'' and bragged his publication rate ''actually increased during the time I was in solitary confinement''. In the background, a spectacular mansion sprawled across 600 acres can be seen. He traded that time spent in solitary confinement for far more luxurious conditions.

His days of entitlement could be numbered, however. He is still wanted in Sweden where he is accused of rape, sexual molestation and illegal use of force on at least two occasions. It's unfortunate, but if he is convicted on all charges, he will only face a total of two years in prison.



As Assange mentioned in his interviews, there very well could be a secret grand jury that's been assembled to investigate possible charges here in the states, though this won't be known until after a decision has been made, which is the purpose of a secret grand jury.

For now, he's limited to the unnamed supporter's mansion just outside London. Part of the conditions he must adhere to include a physical report to a local police department each day, wearing an ankle monitor and paying just over $310,000 US dollars for bail. He's not expected back in a UK court until January 11. It's unclear what the next move for Sweden will be.

For the short term, Assange vows to continue forward with his cable leaks and referred to a UK Telegraph article that he felt justified his actions.

Success Stories

LawCrossing was probably the best legal board I have used. I liked the layout and it was user friendly. I tried to use another job board, but it was not user friendly and was kind of a pain, whereas LawCrossing was easy to use to find jobs. I really liked it. I would certainly recommend this site and service to my colleagues.
