Charges for Intoxicated Sexual Assault Dropped for E-7 After Effective Defense

Sexual Assault
Schofield Barracks, Hawaii
Army Sergeant First Class: E-7
All charges dismissed after the Article 32 hearing.

An Army Sergeant First Class stationed at Schofield Barracks, Hawaii faced serious charges of alcohol-facilitated sexual assault, with consent and the mistake of fact as to consent being central issues. Attorney Tim Bilecki was retained to handle this complex case after preferral of charges to a general court martial. During the Article 32 hearing, court martial lawyer Tim Bilecki strategically highlighted the issue of alcohol consumption, challenging the allegations about the complainant’s level of intoxication. The defense presented evidence from other witnesses contradicting claims of the complainant’s alleged degree of intoxication. This crucial intervention led to the charges being dropped after the Article 32 hearing, aligning with the recommendations of the investigating officer. Bilecki’s effective defense strategy played a pivotal role in achieving this outcome.
