Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has pleaded guilty to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy. Bergdahl was captured by the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2009 after leaving his post. He was released from captivity in a 2014 prisoner exchange. The Associated Press reported Oct. 17 that the guilty pleas could carry a sentence of life in prison. Bergdahl’s lawyers decided he should enter the guilty pleas after failing to convince the judge hearing his case of several key issues, including critical statements about him made by President Trump during his campaign for the White House. The judge also indicated he would consider the fact that two service members were wounded during missions to find and rescue Bergdahl.
