This June 2017 photo released by the Lincoln County (Ga.) Sheriff's Office, shows Reality Winner.

Ed Tarver, former U.S. District attorney and Federal prosecutor spoke to NewsChannel 6 about the likelihood of victor being released on bond and the charges she could face if convicted.

We're learning new details about a local woman accused of leaking classified information to the media.

An Augusta woman charged with leaking classified information was indicted by a federal grand jury on one count, but prosecutors said they are likely to add more.

In a court affidavit filed late Tuesday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said it seized Winner's USA passport, two spiral-bound notebooks, two laptop computers and a Department of Defense-issued country handbook for Iran.

Winner's parents testified in support of her request to be released from jail on bond, describing their daughter as a church-going patriot who volunteered for the military and was never previously in trouble.

The charge carries a potential penalty of up to 10 years in prison and a fine up to $250,000.

Thick clouds, occasional showers, and a northeast (on-shore) breeze will prevent temperatures from going far at all on Tuesday . Pleasant weather sets in for the latter part of the work week with less humidity and highs in the upper 70s to near 80.

Prosecutors also said 25-year-old Reality Winner might try to flee the US if released on bond.

She is being charged by the federal government for "removing classified material from a government facility and mailing it to a news outlet".

A federal magistrate judge held a detention hearing for Reality Winner Thursday afternoon.

Her mother has said victor was a specialist in Pashto, Farsi and Dari, languages spoken in Afghanistan, Iran and Pakistan. Davis said she became a linguist, speaking Arabic and Farsi, and spent four years assigned to the NSA at Fort Meade, Maryland. "But we do know she's very intelligent".

A sign rests on steps during a demonstration supporting Reality Winner in NY on Wednesday. They would pledge their home and the 20 acres of land they own as security for Winner's bond.

In her spare time, victor lifted weights and taught the occasional yoga class.

Trump will not block ex-FBI chief Comey's testimony -White House
Senator Chuck Schumer, the top Democrat in the Senate, said he expected Comey's testimony would not be his last before Congress . Several investigations into Russia's meddling in the 2016 election are ongoing.

"This is a 25-year-old girl who served her country with admiration and distinction", Davis said.

As for her purported confession, he said, "The bigger issue is: Was my client interrogated without her attorney?"

And in an angry reply to a report that Trump said he wasn't hearing complaints about building the Dakota Access oil pipeline, victor wrote on Facebook: "I'm losing my mind".

"She's got a good heart", Winner-Davis said. Solari alleged that in recorded phone calls to her sister from the detention center, victor planned how to defend herself.

Reality Winner was denied bail Thursday after being charged with leaking top secret NSA documents.

"We don't know how much more she knows or how much she remembers", she said, adding that victor had put a thumb drive in a top-secret computer before she left the Air Force at the end of past year.
