The client was given a Field Grade Article 15 for wrongful use of Codeine, but turned down the Article 15 and demanded a trial by court-martial. After Mr. Bilecki became involved and investigated the case, he threatened an innocent ingestion defense. The defense continued to demand a trial and the opportunity to proclaim the client’s innocence, requesting witnesses from as far away as Puerto Rico and Diego Garcia.

The government relented and NEVER CHARGED THE CLIENT.
