O-3 Charged with Sexually Assaulting 3 Minors, Bilecki Exposes Fabricated Story

Sexual Assault of Three Minors, Providing Alcohol to a Minor and False Official Statement
Schofield Barracks, Hawaii
Army Captain – O-3
Not guilty of charges involving two of the three minors, guilty of charges related to one of the minors. Sentenced to 2 years and a dismissal.

An Army Captain was charged with sexually assaulting three pre-teenagers, including two minors who were in his care, as well as their friend, who was a neighbor, resulting in a very complicated case involving DNA, serology and forensic psychologists.

In what was essentially a “MeToo” case, Mr. Bilecki, an established Article 120 UCMJ sexual assault lawyer in Hawaii, fully contested the case in front of a jury and was able to show that two out of three pre-teens who made allegations against our client had fabricated their stories.  

Our client, however, was convicted of the sexual assault involving the neighbor’s daughter, likely based on DNA evidence found during a sexual assault forensic examination.  The jury sentenced our client to two years of confinement, which was significantly less than any pre-trial agreement offered by the government.  

This case is an example of why you fight cases, even when the evidence appears overwhelming. The result was significantly better than just accepting the government’s pre-trial agreement, which would have involved pleading guilty to all three alleged sexual assaults and serving a significantly longer prison sentence.
