Sailor Accused of Aggravated Sexual Contact with Minor Avoids Criminal Charges

Aggravated Sexual Contact with a Child
Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii
Navy Petty Officer First Class - E-6
No court martial charges preferred.

Maximum Sentence:

  • Dishonorable Discharge
  • 20 years in confinement
  • Total forfeiture
  • Reduction to E-1
  • Federal felony conviction
  • Sex offender registration

A Navy Petty Officer  discovered that he was being investigated for aggravated sexual contact with a child and immediately retained Hawaii court martial lawyer Tim Bilecki to defend him.

While the Sailor’s wife was deployed, he was having an affair with his neighbor, whose husband was also deployed. During their affair, it was alleged that our client touched his paramour’s child inappropriately.  The Petty Officer adamantly denied that this occurred.  As we do in every case involving a sexual allegation, we investigated to get an answer to “why” the allegation was made.

We discovered that this allegation was likely a fabrication brought about by our client’s paramour after her deployed husband began to grow suspicious about her relationship with our client. As we delved further into the allegations, we determined that the story was filled with inconsistencies and the timing of the events made the allegations nearly impossible to have occurred.  Once we could establish both a solid alibi as well as a motive to fabricate, we worked with the SJA office to ensure our client would not be criminally charged.  

Ultimately, no court martial charges were preferred against our client.  The adultery was handled administratively
