Robust Defense Clears Marine of Ex-Girlfriend’s Assault Claims After Breakup

Sexual Assault, Aggravated Assault, Assault on a Child
MCBH, Hawaii
Marine Staff Sergeant – E-6
Full Acquittal – Not Guilty of All Charges and Specifications.

A Marine Staff Sergeant at MCBH, Hawaii, faced serious allegations from an ex-girlfriend, including sexual assault, aggravated assault, and assault on a child. The allegations, believed to be driven by jealousy after their breakup, were partially documented on an iPhone. 

Tim Bilecki, a noted court martial defense attorney in Hawaii, was retained for the defense, utilizing the iPhone recordings as a pivotal piece of evidence. At the trial, Bilecki embarked on a rigorous defense, strategically utilizing the recordings to counter the allegations and demonstrate inconsistencies in the ex-girlfriend’s claims.

The defense’s approach was multifaceted, combining meticulous cross-examination of the prosecution’s witnesses with a thorough examination of the alleged victim’s testimony. This robust defense highlighted discrepancies and undermined the credibility of the allegations. The defense’s ability to dismantle the prosecution’s case piece by piece played a crucial role in swaying the jury’s opinion. The jury’s deliberation lasted less than three hours, reflecting the effectiveness of the defense’s argument and strategy at trial.
