DUI Ends with GOMOR for Army 1LT in Okinawa

DUI, Violation of Traffic Regulations
Okinawa, Japan
Army First Lieutenant – O-2
GOMOR filed permanently.

An Army First Lieutenant stationed in Okinawa was pulled over by military police after driving the wrong way down a one-way road while under the influence of alcohol. Following this incident, the Lieutenant received a General Officer Memorandum of Reprimand (GOMOR) for the alleged misconduct.

In response, attorney Tim Bilecki was retained to handle the case and draft the rebuttal matters. Bilecki’s team undertook the task of drafting rebuttal matters to contest the GOMOR, but this was a difficult case because of the command’s zero tolerance policy for drinking and driving in Japan, especially given the fact that the officer was stopped after driving the wrong way down a one-way road. Thankfully, nobody was injured, and we presented matters that the officer accepted responsibility, sought alcohol treatment, and had no prior history of misconduct. Despite these efforts, the GOMOR was permanently filed.
