Marines Cpl Pleads to Lesser Charges, Escapes Conviction for Child Sexual Assault

Attempted Sexual Assault of a Child x 2, Attempted Sexual Abuse of a Child x 2
Camp Foster, Okinawa, Japan
Marine Corps Corporal – E-4
PTA, not guilty of attempted sexual assault of a child, guilty of indecent exposure and indecent language.

A Marine Corporal stationed at Camp Foster, Okinawa, had been charged by military police when he was caught in the NCIS “To Catch a Predator” sting operation.  He was subsequently charged with two specifications of attempted sexual assault of a child and two specifications of attempted sexual abuse of a child.  

Tim Bilecki was quickly retained as a civilian defense counsel in the case and immediately began preparations to contest all charges and specifications in front of a jury.

The week prior to trial, our client sought protection from the two most serious charges (the sexual assault charges) and requested that Mr. Bilecki negotiate a pre-trial agreement.  A pre-trial agreement was approved in which our client would plead guilty to one specification of indecent language and one specification of indecent exposure – both relating to his chats with the undercover NCIS agent.

This pre-trial agreement significantly lowered the category of sex offender registration for our client and reduced his confinement exposure.
