Army W-3 with PTSD Faces DUI and Domestic Violence Charges, Retained as AdSep

DUI, Domestic Violence
Schofield Barracks, Hawaii
Army Chief Warrant Officer 3 – W-3
RETAINED at administrative separation board.

A 16-year Army Chief Warrant Officer 3 was retained at his Board of Inquiry after he received two General Officer Letters of Reprimand in a nine-month period for DUI and alcohol-related domestic violence.  Despite this Soldier’s patriotic past, which included a Purple Heart, a Bronze Star, and three tours of combat, he was shown no leniency and was still required to go through an administrative separation board.  He was at risk of having his reputation damaged and losing his ability to continue to serve and retire.

Court martial lawyer Tim Bilecki was retained to get to the bottom of the charges and the Soldier’s actions leading up to the GOMORs.  All signs pointed to a PTSD diagnosis from the combat tours, along with serious alcohol dependency.

Bilecki’s team brought our client’s conditions to light to the Board of Inquiry and explained the true impact that the PTSD and the alcoholism had on this Soldier. In the process, we showed that any Soldier with a desire to remain accountable for his or her actions can come forward and overcome their issues and remain in good standing with the military.
