Bilecki Prevents Charges for Army W-3 Purchasing Drugs on Dark Web

Use, Possession and Distribution of Drugs
Schofield Barracks, Hawaii
Army Chief Warrant Officer 3 – W-3
No criminal charges preferred.

Bilecki Law Group was retained after Army Criminal Investigation Command (CID0 opened an investigation into our client, an Army Chief Warrant Officer 3, for allegedly purchasing controlled substances through the dark web.  

During the investigation, law enforcement searched our client’s home and seized his computers. Mr. Bilecki, an experienced military drug defense lawyer specializing in Article 112a UCMJ cases, provided comprehensive representation throughout the investigation. The defense strategy included leveraging a digital forensic expert to consult on the use of Onion and Tor browsers, highlighting the challenges law enforcement faced in tracking actions on the dark web. The defense team successfully prevented our client from making any statements to law enforcement during the home raid and seizure of digital media. Despite an extensive investigation by law enforcement computer forensic experts, insufficient evidence was found to prefer charges against our client. Additionally, Bilecki Law Group effectively thwarted attempts by the command to initiate an administrative separation process. To sever jurisdiction, the Warrant officer eventually elected to exit the Army with an honorable discharge.
