Hale's Plead

NPR's Barbara Bradley reports on the trial of retired Army general David Hale. Hale is expected to plead guilty today to several charges of having improper sexual relationships, including a four-month affair with the wife of his chief of staff. The general could face several years in jail but it's not expected he'll get more than a reprimand for his behavior.
