Navy NCO Caught in Controlled Drug Delivery in Hawaii Secures SILT

Drug Distribution
Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii
Navy Petty Officer Second Class – E-5
SILT approved in drug possession with intent to distribute case.

A Navy Petty Officer Second Class at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam became entangled in a serious legal matter when he received a package containing a substantial quantity of controlled substances. The package was initially intercepted by postal authorities in the mailroom and subsequently handed over to the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS).

The NCIS conducted a “controlled delivery,” covertly informing the Sailor that a package awaited his collection. Upon taking possession of the package, he was apprehended by the NCIS agents. As the Sailor was charged with possession with intent to distribute controlled substances, the situation escalated to a general court martial.

Military defense lawyer for UCMJ Article 112 military drug offenses, Tim Bilecki, was retained to mount a defense, asserting that the Sailor was unaware of the narcotics in the package. As the case approached trial, Bilecki negotiated with the prosecution team for a Separation in Lieu of Trial (SILT).

This agreement entailed withdrawing and dismissing all charges in exchange for the Sailor’s separation from the Navy.
