  • Wrongful use of Marijuana


RETAINED at Administrative Separation Board.

A Marine Sergeant stationed in Okinawa, Japan tested position for marijuana after a urinalysis.  The command sought to administratively separate the Marine with an Other Than Honorable discharge characterization.  Civilian defense counsel Tim Bilecki was retained for the administrative separation board and flew to Okinawa to represent the Marine.  At the board, we put on a defense of innocent ingestion and called witnesses to substantiate our defense.  Remarkably, this defense was successful, and the Marine was retained by the board.
