Soldier Tests Positive for THC, Defense Argues Other Medications Could Interfere

Wrongful Use of a Controlled Substance (Positive for THC)
Camp Humphreys, Korea
Army Specialist – E-4
No basis for misconduct at Army Administrative Separation Board.

An Army Specialist stationed at Camp Humphreys tested positive for THC in a urinalysis test. Faced with the potential ramifications of this result, the Specialist retained Article 112 UCMJ military drug crime attorney Tim Bilecki, for his defense.

Bilecki traveled to Korea to represent the Specialist at the administrative separation board. The defense strategy involved presenting a case for a false positive result. Bilecki’s team argued that the Specialist’s use of certain medications, including ibuprofen and tramadol, could have contributed to the positive THC result.

This argument was critical in challenging the validity of the urinalysis and defending the Specialist’s innocence.  The board found no basis for misconduct, allowing the Specialist to be retained in the Army. This decision underscored the effectiveness of the defense in raising reasonable doubts about the urinalysis results.
