    2017.06.30 Bowe Berghdahl case proceeds to trial

    Bergdahl case: Judge lets rare misbehavior charge proceed

    RALEIGH, N.C. — The military judge overseeing Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl's case says prosecutors can try the soldier on a rare charge alleging he endangered comrades by walking off his post in Afghanistan in 2009.

    The judge, Col. Jeffery Nance, rejected a defense motion on Thursday to dismiss the charge of misbehavior before the enemy, which carries up to a life sentence.

    Bergdahl also faces a desertion charge, punishable by up to 5 years, at trial in October.

    The Latest: Injury evidence allowed at Bergdahl sentencing

    1:15 p.m.

    Evidence of injuries to military members who searched for Bowe Bergdahl will be allowed at the sentencing phase if the Army sergeant is convicted of endangering his comrades by walking off his post in Afghanistan in 2009.

    The judge, Army Col. Jeffery Nance, ruled Friday that prosecutors can use evidence from two search missions that resulted in serious wounds to a soldier and a Navy Seal.

    Nance previously ruled that evidence of injuries can’t be used at the guilt-or-innocence phase because it could cause jurors to react emotionally rather than rationally. But the sentencing phase has a different standard for allowing evidence of aggravating circumstances.

    I think he'll be convicted. Hope he gets the maximum sentence.

    Interesting that Obama chose not to pardon him. Eh?

    This will be a military trial, so it won't be the circus that a lot of civilian trials are.

    Wonder if there will be supporters for him showing up to demonstrate? Nah. I doubt it. Most everybody understands he's lucky to be alive-- traitors used to get the death penalty.

    Just another enormous "mistake" brought to you by former president Barack Obama.

    But hey-- if Bergdahl had claimed to be transgender or gay, and fit neatly into one of Obama's agenda priorities, Obama might have pardoned him, like he did Bradley/ Chelsea Manning.

    Berghdahl is a traitor. He'll be convicted. He'll be lucky if he gets "only" gets 30 years. At least he'll be doing his time in a military prison, not the cushy civilian federal prison. So there's that.

    One POS traitor = 5 taliban terrorists set free. Thank you, Barack Obama.

    Injured Navy SEAL, Army Ranger claim search for Bowe Bergdahl ended their careers

    A former Navy SEAL and a former Army Ranger are claiming that they both suffered career-ending injuries while searching for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, according to a story by Task and Purpose. Prosecutors are hoping to use their testimonies to convince a jury that Bergdahl both deserted his post and, more importantly, committed misbehavior that endangered his comrades.

    In July 2009, Army National Guard Sgt. 1st Class Mark Allen was shot in the head while searching for Bergdahl in the Paktika province. The next day, Navy Senior Chief Petty Officer Jimmy Hatch was shot in the leg on a different search mission. Both men claim they were forced to retire because of the injuries, reports Task and Purpose.
