A United States army sergeant, who was court martialled after deserting his post in Afghanistan, has been given a dishonorable discharge. The judge had wide leeway because Bergdahl made no deal with prosecutors to limit his sentence.
Bergdahl's civilian attorney - at a news conference after the sentence was announced, said, "Sgt. Bergdahl has looked forward to today for a long time". He was held captive by Taliban allies for five years. "He has lost almost a decade of his life".
A punitive discharge deprives Bergdahl of most or all his veterans benefits. Instead, he will be dishonorably discharged from the military, as reported by CNN, and his rank reduced from sergeant to private and he will be "required to pay a $1,000 fine from his salary for the next 10 months".
