Charges Dropped Against Army Sergeant Accused of Rape on Four Victims in Korea

Rape (x3)
Yongsan, Korea
Army Sergeant - E-5
All charges dismissed, case resolved administratively.

Maximum Sentence:

  • DD
  • Life in confinement
  • Total forfeiture
  • Reduction to E-1
  • Federal felony conviction
  • Sex offender registration

An Army Sergeant was charged at a general court martial with three specifications of rape on four separate victims over a three-year period. The government alleged that the client was a womanizer who preyed on enlisted women in bars, enticed them to go home with him, and proceeded to sexually assault them.

At the Article 32 hearing, the defense ,led by Tim Bilecki, a military defense attorney for UCMJ Article 120 sexual assault, proposed the theory that all of the alleged victims were related (roommates, friends, etc.) and that they were angered by our client’s ungentlemanly treatment following an episode of consensual intercourse. Subsequently, the government referred all charges to a GCM despite the wishes of one alleged victim.

Mr. Bilecki turned down every plea bargain the government offered and demanded the opportunity to fully contest the case in front of a military panel. Less than one week before trial — after three of Mr. Bilecki’s cases received consecutive, full acquittals — the government dismissed all charges against the client and agreed to administratively resolve the case.
