The Racine soldier who bolted into North Korea has been charged with desertion.
The Pentagon announced the charges against Travis King yesterday. King spent about two months in North Korea after he fled into the country back in July. No one is saying why King ran, but he;d just been released from a South Korean jail and was facing additional punishments from the Army back here in the US. King is also being charged with possessing sexual images of a child.
King could be sent to prison for three years on the desertion charges.
