The Federal Practice Group Worldwide Service Founding Partner Eric Montalvo
recently sat down with Frank Carmichael of 1050 WLIP for a Q & A on
the latest developments in the Bowe Bergdahl case. Touching on many of
the topics he has in previous interviews, Mr. Montalvo shared some of
his viewpoints with Mr. Carmichael. Initially, he discusses the difficulty
defense attorneys have when working with clients who fail to exercise
their Constitutional right to remain silent, as is the case with Bergdahl
sharing his story on the hit podcast
Serial. This is due to the face that his statements may be used against him.
Additionally, Attorney Montalvo goes on to discuss the role of media attention
in the case, the question of mental health and thought process of Bergdahl
at the time of the alleged offenses, the terms of his release, political
elements involved in the larger story, and more.
