Bilecki Averts Court Martial Charges for Coast Guard NCO in Drug Case

Wrongful Use of Drugs
Honolulu, Hawaii
Coast Guard Petty Officer First Class – E-6
No charges preferred, honorable discharge.

A Coast Guard member at the rank of Petty Officer First Class – E-6 was confronted with allegations of wrongful use of a controlled substance.

Tim Bilecki, a Hawaii court martial lawyer, was retained as civilian defense counsel. Bilecki adeptly navigated the case by actively working with the command and the Staff Judge Advocate (SJA) office, ensuring that no incriminating statements were made by the service member to law enforcement or the chain of command. His strategic collaborations and defense tactics were instrumental in preventing the preferral of criminal charges against the service member. Additionally, Bilecki facilitated a resolution that allowed the individual to depart from the military without enduring a court-martial and maintaining his honorable discharge.
