The client, an emergency room doctor, was charged with larceny of nearly $30,000 of BAH funds and false official statements in a case involving allegations in both Korea and Hawaii. These charges threatened the client’s liberty and continued ability to practice medicine.

At the Article 32 hearing, Mr. Bilecki questioned various members of the finance and in-processing office regarding the myriad of confusing, and often conflicting, rules for BAH and OHA allowances when family members travel between the US and Korea.

Afterward, the government agreed to dismiss all larceny charges against the client in exchange for a “guilty to negligent dereliction of duty” plea. The client received NO JAIL TIME and NO DISCHARGE. The client has since resigned from the Army with an honorable discharge and continues to practice medicine.

Result: 

  • Plea to reduce charge
  • No jail time
  • No discharge
