What Is Article 131g (Wrongful Interference with an Adverse Administrative Hearing) of the UCMJ?

Every article of the UCMJ requires prosecutors to prove beyond a reasonable doubt a handful of critical assumptions—known as elements—to convict you of a crime. A service member who is accused of interfering with an adverse administrative hearing cannot be convicted unless the following four elements are proven:

  1. That the accused wrongfully did a certain act;
  2. That the accused did so in the case of a certain person against whom the accused had reason to believe there was or would be an adverse administrative proceeding pending;
  3. That the act was done with the intent to influence, impede, or otherwise obstruct the conduct of such administrative proceeding, or otherwise obstruct the due administration of justice; and
  4. That, under the circumstances, the conduct of the accused was to the prejudice of good order and discipline in the armed forces or was of a nature to bring discredit upon the armed forces.

Military Defense Attorney for Article 131g of the UCMJ: Fighting Back Against Charges of Interfering with an Adverse Administrative Proceeding

The military has accused you or someone you love of obstructing justice by actively interfering in an adverse administrative hearing of another soldier. But accusations are very different from a conviction. And there are things you can do right now to ensure a successful outcome should you be formally charged.   Do not aid law enforcement in their investigation by allowing them to search your belongings or question you without previously seeking advice from an attorney. Avoid speaking to anyone about the case—even loved ones—and do not speak to anyone about your relationship with the service member who is currently undergoing an adverse administrative proceeding. Lastly, consider hiring a reputable law firm with a great deal of experience, because that can mean the difference between exoneration, and a conviction with a maximum sentence.   Bilecki Law Group has been fighting for active duty and reserve service members for decades. Here’s why past clients have chosen us to represent their interests in court.   Why should you retain Bilecki Law Group?
