Bilecki Exposes False Sexual Assault Allegations, Navy NCO Fully Acquitted

Sexual Assault and Rape
Yokosuka, Japan
Navy Petty Officer Second Class – E-5
Full Acquittal, not guilty of all charges and specifications.

The case unfolded in Yokosuka, Japan, when a Navy Petty Officer Second Class was accused of sexual assault following an encounter with a local bar girl from the Honch area near the base. After meeting the woman, the Petty Officer brought her back to his room, where the two had sexual intercourse. Subsequently, the woman claimed she had been sexually assaulted, seeking financial compensation from the military for her allegations.

As the allegations escalated, charges were officially preferred to a general court martial. Recognizing the gravity of the situation, the Petty Officer enlisted the defense services of Tim Bilecki, a Yokosuka court martial defense attorney. Bilecki and his team investigated the case and then traveled to Yokosuka to represent the Sailor in a general court martial jury trial.

A critical moment in the trial came during Bilecki’s cross-examination of the alleged victim. Bilecki meticulously questioned her about the events of that night, focusing on the issue of consent and probing into the possibility that the Sailor was targeted with a false sexual assault allegation intended to leverage financial benefits from the military. This line of questioning was pivotal in unraveling the prosecution’s case. The jury, after considering the evidence and the arguments presented during the trial, delivered a verdict of full acquittal. The Petty Officer Second Class was found not guilty of all charges and specifications, clearing him of the accusations and allowing him to continue his naval career without the shadow of these serious allegations.
