Bilecki’s Advocacy Secures Lenient Sentence for E-4 Charged with Disrespect

Disrespect to an Officer, Failure to Obey an Order
Schofield Barracks, Hawaii
Army | Rank: Specialist (E-4)
Summary Court Martial, reduction to E-1, 30 days confinement.


An Army Specialist at Schofield Barracks faced charges for severe misconduct, including blatant disrespect to a senior officer and repeatedly failing to obey direct orders. The situation was aggravated by its occurrence in a high-stress operational setting, which was alleged to have undermined unit discipline and cohesion. Attorney Tim Bilecki was retained to manage the case. His strategic defense highlighted the Specialist’s otherwise commendable service record and the context of the incidents. Bilecki’s effective legal advocacy was instrumental in keeping the case at a Summary Court Martial level, which significantly influenced the sentencing outcome. The Specialist was ultimately sentenced to a reduction to E-1 and 30 days confinement, a decision that allowed for the possibility of rehabilitation and continued military service.
