FORT BRAGG, N.C. — Officials at Fort Bragg have scheduled two weeks in August for the court-martial of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl on charges of desertion and misbehavior before the enemy.
Bergdahl, who was held by the Taliban for five years after he walked off a base in Afghanistan, was arraigned during a short hearing last month on charges of desertion and misbehavior before the enemy. If convicted of desertion, he could get up to five years in prison.
A pretrial hearing is scheduled for Tuesday before Army Judge Col. Jeffery R. Nance, who will preside over future hearings, including the court-martial.
