Sailor Apologizes for Intoxicated Sex and Faces Charges, Bilecki Ensures Defense

Sexual Assault
Joint Base Pearl Harbor - Hickam, Hawaii
Navy Petty Officer First Class – E-6
Full Acquittal – Not Guilty of All Charges and Specifications.

A Navy Petty Officer First Class based at Pearl Harbor faced serious sexual assault charges. The case centered around the alleged victim’s consumption of alcohol and their ability to consent. Upon facing these charges, the Petty Officer First Class retained Tim Bilecki, a well-recognized Article 120 UCMJ sexual assault lawyer in Hawaii. Bilecki undertook a comprehensive preparation for the trial, focusing on the key issue of consent and the alleged victim’s alcohol consumption.

The trial strategy hinged on a critical analysis of the alleged victim’s level of intoxication at the time of the incident. Bilecki presented evidence and expert testimonies to contest the prosecution’s claim about the victim’s incapacity to consent due to alcohol consumption. The defense aimed to show that the alleged victim’s alcohol intake did not impair their ability to give or withhold consent.

Bilecki’s defense also scrutinized inconsistencies in the prosecution’s narrative and the lack of evidence supporting the charge of sexual assault. The defense’s approach involved a thorough examination of the circumstances surrounding the incident, including testimonies from witnesses and an analysis of the events leading up to the alleged assault.

After a rigorous trial that delved into the nuances of consent in the context of alcohol consumption, the trial concluded with a full acquittal. The Petty Officer First Class was found not guilty on all charges and specifications, underscoring the importance of a detailed and strategic defense in cases involving complex issues like consent and intoxication.
