California Court Martial Attorney
California is home to nearly 200,000 active duty and reserve service members—more than any other state in the Union. Together these men and women represent every major branch of the United States Military—from Coast Guard and Marines to Air Force and Army.
Tens of thousands are stationed across dozens of installations throughout the state and play an active role in the country’s defensive and offensive capabilities year-round.
Many of the men and women representing California’s military have sacrificed a great deal to be where they are today. So it’s all the more surprising to see the government toss them aside the moment they make a single mistake or are accused of a criminal offense they did not commit.
- The government wants you tried, convicted, and sentenced. You will not be given the benefit of the doubt. Rather, you will be tried like any common criminal, despite years or even decades of honorably serving your country.
- You could lose your rank, titles and military benefits. Most offenses under the UCMJ threaten a bad-conduct or dishonorable discharge, both of which will almost certainly lead to the loss of your military benefits. Over the course of your lifetime, this could be tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars—gone in the blink of an eye.
- More than just your military career is at stake. A prison sentence could steal your freedom. The registration of your name as a sex offender could destroy your reputation and your civilian career.
The risk of a conviction is simply too great to ignore. Do not wait another minute to secure legal representation. Contact Bilecki Law Group TODAY and receive a confidential consultation into your case.
California History and Court-Martial Activity
Today, California is home to dozens of military installations representing every branch of the United States armed forces.
The state plays an oversized role in both the defensive and offensive capabilities of the country and is certain to continue that role over the coming decades.
- Original presence by U.S. Forces: 1850
- Number of military installations: 20+
- Number of U.S. troops in California: 190,000+
Marijuana may be legal in California, but that has only served to cause confusion in the ranks of the personnel stationed here (you could still be court-martialed for the use, possession, and distribution of drugs, and many service members still are to this day).
Other criminal offenses include fraud charges against the government, assault charges against civilians and other service members, and sexual assault.
