Army Official Recommends No Jail Time For Bergdahl
Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is being charged with desertion, but the officer reviewing his case says those charges shouldn't lead to jail time.By Matt Picht | October 10, 2015
Since being freed from Taliban captivity, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has been facing serious charges.
But it's looking increasingly likely the Army is going to be lenient with Bergdahl; the Army officer in charge of reviewing his case has apparently recommended no jail time or punitive discharges for Bergdahl.
Bergdahl's capture by the Taliban after he left his post in 2009 led to charges of desertion and misbehavior before the enemy; the latter charge could result in life imprisonment as well as a dishonorable discharge without pay or benefits.
