The now 31 year old Bowe Bergdahl could face up to five years in prison on the desertion charge and a life sentence for misbehavior.
Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is expected to plead guilty to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy. That would avoid facing trial for leaving his post in Afghanistan.
Bergdahl is said to submit the plea later this month and sentencing will start October 23/17.
Bergdahl left his Afghanistan post in 2009 and was held captive by the Taliban for around five years. Released in 2014 in a prisoner swap for five Taliban detainees, he sparked a disturbing dispute about negotiating with hostage takers.
