Tim Bilecki

All Charges Dismissed for Army SGT Grossly Overcharged with Six False Statements

False Official Statement x 6, Fraternization
Camp Casey, Korea
Army Sergeant - E-5
All charges dismissed before trial

Maximum Sentence:

  • Dishonorable Discharge
  • 32 years confinement
  • Total forfeiture
  • Reduction to E-1
  • Federal felony conviction

In another example of why court martial lawyer Tim Bilecki takes cases to trial, the government dismissed all charges and specifications in this case less than one week before trial.

In typical military justice fashion, our client was grossly overcharged with six separate specifications of false official statement for allegedly altering promotion and award documents and charged with fraternization for allegedly having all-female barracks sex parties.

From the outset, Bilecki demanded a trial and refused to accept any of the government’s “deals” in the case. An extremely aggressive posture convinced prosecutors they would lose the case if taken to trial. One week before the trial start date and on the morning Mr. Bilecki was scheduled to fly to Korea, the government waved the white flag and dismissed all charges against the client.
