A British court on Thursday found WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange guilty of breaching his bail conditions in 2012.

The court remanded him into custody pending sentencing.

Assange faces a sentence of up to 12 months for the conviction.

He will face another court hearing on May 2 on a request made by the US for his extradition for alleged computer hacking.

According to the US Justice Department, Assange allegedly conspired in March 2010 with Chelsea Manning, a former US Army intelligence analyst, to crack a password stored on Department of Defence computers and leaked massive military and diplomatic documents.
