Our client was charged with three counts of rape on four separate victims over a three-year period. The government alleged that the client was a womanizer who preyed on enlisted women in bars, enticed them to go home with him, and proceeded to sexually assault them.

At the Article 32 hearing, the defense proposed the theory that all of the alleged victims were related (roommates, friends, etc.), and that they were angered by the client’s ungentlemanly treatment following an episode of consensual intercourse.

Subsequently, the government referred all charges to a GCM despite the wishes of one alleged victim. Mr. Bilecki turned down every plea bargain the government offered and demanded the opportunity to fully contest the case in front of a military panel.

Less than one week before trial – after three of Mr. Bilecki’s cases received consecutive, full acquittals – the government dismissed all charges against the client.
