Army E-4 Accused of Assaulting Family, Bilecki Negotiates AdSep

Aggravated Assault with Intent to Inflict Grievous Bodily Harm
Schofield Barracks, Hawaii
Army E-4
All charges dismissed in exchange for administrative separation under Chapter 10.

In a complex case at Schofield Barracks, Hawaii, an Army Specialist faced serious allegations of aggravated assault with intent to inflict grievous bodily harm. This case stemmed from multiple domestic disturbances involving the Specialist and his family members. The situation escalated, resulting in injuries to the alleged victims, which were thoroughly documented by the Army Criminal Investigation Division (CID) and other involved agencies.

The severity of the charges, backed by CID’s evidence of injuries, presented a significant legal challenge. The Specialist’s military career and freedom were at stake, leading to the decision to retain Tim Bilecki, an Article 128 UCMJ aggravated assault attorney known for his experience in handling complex assault cases within the military justice system.

Understanding the gravity of the situation and the strong evidence arrayed by the prosecution, Bilecki embarked on a strategic approach to resolve the case favorably for his client. He entered into intense negotiations with the government, aiming to reach a resolution that would avoid the risk of a court-martial trial and the potential for severe punitive consequences.

The negotiations proved fruitful. Bilecki successfully brokered a deal in which the government agreed to dismiss all charges against the Specialist. In exchange, the Specialist consented to an administrative separation under Chapter 10 of the U.S. Army’s regulations. This agreement was a significant outcome, as it allowed the Specialist to avoid a court-martial trial, potential confinement, and a criminal record.

The administrative separation under Chapter 10 meant the Specialist’s departure from the Army, but it also meant preserving his future outside the military without the burden of a criminal conviction. This resolution highlighted the importance of skilled legal advocacy in navigating the complexities of military justice and achieving outcomes that balance the interests of both the accused and the military.
