Bowe Bergdahl expected to plead guilty to desertion and misbehavior

Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is expected to plead guilty to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy rather than face trial for leaving his Afghanistan post. Bergdahl will submit the plea later this month.

Bergdahl's lawyer declined to comment when contacted by Fox News. He faces up to five years in prison on the desertion charge and a life sentence for misbehavior.

Bergdahl, 31, who was serving with an Alaska-based infantry regiment, deserted his Afghanistan post in 2009, when he was 23 years old, and was held captive by the Taliban for about five years.
