Bergdahl Guilty of Desertion and Misbehavior Before the Enemy

Monday, US Army Pvt. Bowe Bergdahl. 31 anni, plead guilty to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy.

Despite his plea, the prosecution and defense have not agreed to a stipulation of facts in the case, according to one of his lawyers, Maj. Oren Gleich, which is an indication that they did not reach a deal to limit his punishment.

The misbehavior charge carries a maximum penalty of life in prison, the desertion charge is punishable by up to 5 years.

The guilty pleas bring the highly politicized case closer to an end 8 years after his disappearance in Afghanistan set off search missions and deaths of several of his fellow service members.

The guilty pleas allow him to avoid a trial, but he still faces a sentencing hearing that’s expected to start on 23 October.

Former US President Barack Hussein Obama was criticized by Republicans for the 2014 Taliban prisoner swap that brought Pvt. Bergdahl home, while US President Donald Trump harshly criticized Pvt. Bergdahl on the campaign trail.

The defense was rebuffed in an effort to prove President Donald Trump had unfairly swayed the case with scathing criticism of Pvt. Bergdahl, including suggestions of harsh punishment.
