Army Captain Facing a Slew of Driving-Related Charges Averts Court Martial

Speeding in Japan, Failure to Obey a Lawful Order (traveling through the Philippines without proper authorization), DUI, Driving on a Suspended License, False Official Statement, Driving on a Revoked License, Accessing Base without Authorization, Failing to Stop when Ordered to by a Gate Guard.
Torii Station, Okinawa
Army Captain - O-3
No court martial charges preferred. Officer separated with general, under honorable conditions discharge.

An Army Special Forces operator stationed at Torii Station, Okinawa faced a slew of misconduct charges dating back to 2009 during an operation in the Philippines.

The misconduct included traveling throughout the Philippines without proper authorization, traveling throughout the Philippines against a direct order not to do so, a DUI in Japan, multiple occasions of driving on both a suspended and revoked license, making a false official statement and failing to stop at an installation access control point gate when ordered to do so and while on a revoked driver’s license.

In order to get the best defense possible, the Captain was retained civilian defense counsel Timothy Bilecki. In this case, Mr. Bilecki first dealt with an onslaught of administrative matters while continuously fighting to keep our client from getting criminally charged.

Mr. Bilecki assisted in preparing documents for the promotion review board, drafted rebuttals to two separate General Officer Memorandum of Reprimand (GOMOR) and assisted in the appeal of officer evaluation reports.

During this one-year time period where Mr. Bilecki represented the client, we were successful in keeping any court martial charges from being preferred. When our client was notified of the inevitable officer show cause board (BOI), Mr. Bilecki traveled to Okinawa to fight the onslaught of allegations against our client and do whatever possible to keep him from being discharged with an Other Than Honorable Discharge.

Mr. Bilecki fully litigated the BOI and were successful in securing our client a General, Under Honorable Conditions discharge.
