WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. Army sergeant who was recently released from five years of captivity by the Taliban is in legal limbo -- as the investigation continues into why and how he left his post in Afghanistan and ended up in the insurgents' hands.

Senior U.S. Army officials say Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has not yet been interviewed by the two-star general appointed last week to investigate the matter. They said he has not been read his legal rights and has not asked for a lawyer.

But the officials say the military team helping him recover from his imprisonment has told him that he is not immune from any subsequent charges, including anything linked to information he gives them now.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the case publicly by name.

Bergdahl was released earlier this month, in a controversial trade for the release of five Taliban leaders at the Guantanamo naval prison in Cuba.
