    The young intelligence industry contractor accused of leaking a top-secret report to journalists made her second appearance in federal court on Tuesday, as a judge set her trial date for the fall, NBC News reports.

    Judge Brian Epps set a proposed trial date of October 23 for Winner, who is charged with leaking classified information to the media while she was a government contractor working with the National Security Agency.

    Winner 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 U.S. presidential election.
