Protect Your Future with a Court Martial Attorney
You or someone you love has experienced the terrible injury or death of a child. But before you even have a chance to grieve, the government has brought charges against you of attempted murder, aggravated assault or unpremeditated murder. Ignoring the government’s aggressive action toward you may be your first impulse. But set aside your emotional pain for a moment to consider this:
- The government has convicted service members in the past of injuring or killing their own child despite a lack of firsthand witnesses or hard evidence. The injuries alone are evidence enough of violence.
- Should the prosecution be allowed to run the table on the defense’s case, you could be facing decades of jail time, forfeitures of military pay, rank, and benefits, and a dishonorable discharge.
- The conviction will reverberate through your social life. Friends, family and loved ones will be disgusted by your actions. You will not be believed. You will not be given the benefit of the doubt.
- Child Protective Services could take your other children away. The accusations alone will likely drive a CPS investigation.
A desire to grieve is understandable, but failing to defend yourself could jeopardize your future. Now is the time to fight back against charges involving shaken baby injuries or death. Bilecki Law Group will defend you against an unjust prosecution that wants to see you behind bars. One call to our office is the first step to protecting your reputation.
Shaken Baby Injuries and Deaths: The Facts about Your Case
General courts-martial trials that involve a shaken baby injury and death are emotionally charged events for everyone involved. Expect the prosecution to use this emotion against you in the form of outrage and disgust. Expect the case to revolve around your reputation—both personally as a civilian and a parent, and officially as a service member of the U.S. Armed Forces.
Furthermore, expect the defense and prosecution to wage a war where medical experts take the stand and autopsy results are assessed and considered. The prosecution’s witnesses will allege that the child’s injuries could not possibly be caused by a mild fall or at random. The defense’s medical experts will make claims to the contrary.
Frequently Asked Questions About Drug Offenses
Expect to be hit hard in your court-martial. Much like the Obama administration went after service members accused of sexual assault with a zeal we’ve never seen before, the Trump administration is looking to go after drug offenders with the same kind of determination.
This will only lead to harsher sentencing and more aggressive tactics by prosecutors. This is why it’s more important than ever that you have court martial lawyers with a proven record for winning drug cases in the military.
The War on Drugs is ongoing, and command wants to be seen as aggressively tackling this problem to show they are taking a stand on preserving good order and discipline. The more service members that get prosecuted under their watch, the tougher they look to their superiors. And the likelier it is they’ll get promoted.
Command is more than okay with your very public hanging. They need some red meat to throw at the public now and then to confirm that they’re winning the “War on Drugs.”
Not all drug use is wrongful. The lawful use of prescription drugs is an obvious example. The ingestion of a substance a person believes is powdered sugar, but is actually cocaine, for example, would not be wrongful. And these are just two examples we’ve seen in court cases around the world.
In a similar vein, recent DEA sting operations resulted in the indictment of a number of active duty and formerly active duty service members for drug trafficking charges. These sting operations involve casting a large net that captures innocent people, as well as actual street-level dealers and traffickers.
Regardless of the charges brought against you, and no matter how much evidence the military says they have on you, we can help. Bilecki Law Group defends service members accused of the full spectrum of drug offenses. From relatively minor positive urinalysis charges to international drug trafficking, we have the experience, street smarts and tenacity to take on drug offenses at all levels.
