USCID Denies Request to Remove Subject Titling for Army O-3

BAH Fraud
Fort Shafter, Hawaii
Army Captain – O-3
Request to remove titling decision denied.

An Army Captain was previously under investigation for theft of government funds involving Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) at his prior duty station. Our office did not represent him in that case, and while he was never criminally charged, he was subject titled by CID. Subject titling indicates an individual has been associated with a criminal investigation, potentially impacting their military career despite not implying guilt. This low threshold for titling makes it notably difficult to reverse due to the procedural nature of military justice systems.

Affected by the titling at his follow-on duty assignment at Fort Shafter, Hawaii, the Captain retained Bilecki’s law firm to challenge this status. We drafted and submitted a memorandum to the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command (USACID) seeking to remove the subject titling. Despite our efforts and the challenges posed by the low standard for titling, the submission was ultimately denied by USACID, underscoring the difficulty of altering such designations once set.
