U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Berghdahl, after a lengthy investigation, will be charged with desertion, according to reports citing Bergdahl’s lawyer:

As you recall, last May President Obama made an appearance with Berghdahl’s parents at the White House announcing his release in exchange for five detainees from Gitmo.

The Army will reportedly deliver a statement at 3:30 ET.
