WASHINGTON (AP) -

The Associated Press is reporting that Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is expected to plead guilty to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy.

A military judge said previously, jury selection was expected to get underway on Oct. 16, with the full trial expected to get underway by Oct. 23, 2017. 

Bergdahl, originally of Hailey, Idaho, was held by the Taliban for about five years. It's been nearly three years since his release on May 31, 2014, in exchange for five Taliban prisoners.

He is charged with desertion and misbehavior before the enemy.
