Sailor Charged with Attempted Murder of Pregnant Girlfriend Gets 6-Month Jail

Attempted Murder, Assault with Intent to Inflict Grievous Bodily Harm, Assault Consummated by Battery x2, Communicating a Threat x2
Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii
Navy Petty Officer Second Class - E-5
Plea agreement for 6 months in attempted murder case.

Maximum Sentence:

  • Dishonorable Discharge
  • Life in Confinement
  • Total forfeiture
  • Reduction to E-1
  • Federal felony conviction

A Navy Petty Officer was initially accused of trying to kill his pregnant girlfriend over a dispute involving another female.

When Bilecki, a military defense lawyer for murder and assault in Hawaii, was retained, before charges were preferred, this case was set to be charged as an attempted murder. By working with the prosecutors, we averted the attempted murder charges, and only charges of aggravated assault with intent to commit grievous bodily injury (among others) were preferred.

Bilecki then demanded a fully contested jury trial. Not long before the trial was to begin, the government offered the defense a favorable  pre-trial agreement that significantly limited the client’s confinement exposure, and the defense managed to cap the confinement at 6 months.
