Deserter pleads guilty

Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl told a military judge that he’s pleading guilty to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy.

Bergdahl, 31, is charged with endangering his comrades by walking away from his post.

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 serious wounds to service members who searched for Bergdahl are still expected to play a role in his sentencing. The guilty pleas allow him to avoid a trial, but he still faces a sentencing hearing that’s expected to start on Oct. 23.

He could get life in prison. He deserves life in prison.
