Judge rules no jail time for Bergdahl

 Judge rules no jail time for Bergdahl BY REBECCA KHEEL - 11/03/17 11:44 AM EDT  33 360     Judge rules no jail time for Bergdahl © Getty Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl will not serve any jail time for walking off his post in Afghanistan in 2009, a military judge ruled Friday.  The judge, Col. Jeffrey Nance, sentenced Bergdahl to a reduction in rank, a payment of $1,000 per month for 10 months and a dishonorable discharge, according to multiple reports.  Bergdahl pleaded guilty last month to charges of desertion and misbehavior before the enemy. He faced a maximum sentence of life in prison.   Prosecutors had recommended a sentence of 14 years in prison. Defense attorneys, meanwhile, asked for no prison time, citing Bergdahl’s time in Taliban captivity.  Bergdahl walked off his post in Afghanistan in 2009 and was held captive by the Taliban until 2014 when President Obama made a controversial prisoner swap.  Bergdahl’s defense lawyers twice tried to have the case dismissed over campaign trail comments from President Trump. Trump repeatedly called Bergdahl a traitor who should be executed.  "We're tired of Sgt. Bergdahl, who's a traitor, a no-good traitor, who should have been executed,” Trump said at an October 2015 rally, for example.  “Thirty years ago, he would have been shot,” he added.  Nance ruled Bergdahl can get a fair trial despite Trump’s comments, but said he would consider them as a mitigating factor in the sentencing.
