Drug Charges for Army E-3 Dismissed After Bilecki’s Motion to Suppress Evidence

Possession, Use, Distribution of Controlled Substance, Numerous Assault on Military Police Officers, Disrespect, Violation of Lawful Order
Camp Humphreys, Korea
Army Private First Class – E-3
All drug-related charges dismissed; time served.

An Army Private First Class was under investigation by the CID for importing and distributing LSD into South Korea. The investigation came to a head when the military police were called on the PFC, and a large fight ensued between him and the police, which resulted in the Soldier being taken to the hospital.

Searches were then performed in the Soldier’s barracks room after he had departed for the hospital, revealing large quantities of LSD.  The Soldier was subsequently charged with possession, use, and distribution of LSD, along with numerous other charges.  Several other Soldiers were also implicated in this drug distribution ring, and many of them cut deals with the prosecution to testify against the E-3 in exchange for lenience.  

Tim Bilecki was retained by the Soldier as an Article 112a UCMJ military drug defense attorney and immediately began working with Pac Rim TDS counsel to fight the case and gather information to utilize in cross-examination against the government “informants.”

Mr. Bilecki filed a motion to suppress all the drugs found in our client’s freezer and all derivative evidence (including our client’s statement to CID).  After a lengthy motions hearing at Camp Humphreys, Korea, the military judge granted the defense motion and suppressed all the drugs that were seized and all evidence that flowed from that seizure. Mr. Bilecki capitalized on that ruling and submitted a pre-trial agreement for the minor non-drug-related offenses, and our client was released from confinement on time served.
