Our client was charged with breaking into a junior enlisted Soldier’s on-post quarters and touching her sexually against her will after allegedly sexually harassing her in the past.

The government also charged our client with wrongful sexual contact with an unrelated junior enlisted Soldier, thus giving the case two separate “victims” at fairly unrelated events.

When the Soldier retained Bilecki Law Group, he had already entered into a guilty plea but was looking for other options. We conducted a thorough review of the case and backed out of the guilty plea. For the next three months, we fought the government until we were able to get a Chapter 10 (Separation in Lieu of Court-Martial) approved for our client. After the Chapter 10 was approved, all charges were dismissed. Based on a prior honorable enlistment, our client was also able to maintain his eligibility for the Post-9/11 GI Bill.
