Barrack’s Joke and Cocaine Urinalysis Get Marine Into Trouble, Bilecki Defends

Abusive Sexual Contact, Wrongful Use of Cocaine
Marine Corps Base Hawaii, Kaneohe, Hawaii
Marine Lance Corporal – E-3
Not guilty of sexual assault, guilty on cocaine charges. 90 days of confinement and BCD.

A Marine was investigated and charged with wrongful use of cocaine in violation of Article 112a, UCMJ and abusive sexual contact in violation of Article 120, UCMJ. The allegations stemmed from a drunken party in the barracks in which one Marine filmed the LCpl placing his penis in another Marine’s hand who was sleeping.  

The act was meant to be a joke, but the leadership did not find it amusing, especially when the Marine who placed his penis in the sleeping Marine’s hand came up positive for cocaine on a urinalysis.  That was the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back, and court martial charges were preferred.

Civilian defense counsel Tim Bilecki was retained and negotiated a plea agreement in which our client agreed to plead guilty to the use of cocaine in exchange for the government dropping the abusive sexual contact charges.  The military judge sentenced the Marine to 90 days confinement and a Bad Conduct Discharge.
