The Associated Press and CNN reported on Monday that Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl would plead guilty at a military hearing to “desertion and misbehavior before the enemy.”

Bergdahl left his post in Afghanistan in 2009 and was captured by the Taliban. He was released in a 2014 prisoner exchange for five Taliban prisoners.
