Sexual Assault Of a Minor Criminal Defense
At Bilecki Law Group, We believe every service member has earned their right to an aggressive defense on their day in court. We specialize in taking the fight to the prosecution and winning cases that others said were unwinnable.
The Age of Consent
Under the UCMJ, there are two critical ages that come into play with regard to the alleged victim in these types of cases: 16 years old and 12 years old. Contrary to popular belief, the age of consent under the UCMJ is NOT 18, but rather 16 years of age. A service member can legally and lawfully have sexual contact or sexual intercourse with anyone who is 16 years old or older.
Consent Does Not Matter
“You’ll see on the books some 40 or so cases where a service member has been caught by ‘To Catch a Predator’ sting operations in Okinawa. What they won’t tell you is that number is far higher. And the standards they use to catch these ‘criminals’ is criminal in itself.”
