These cases can include rape, sexual assault, aggravated sexual assault, abusive sexual contact, sexual assault of a minor, indecent viewing, indecent recording, forcible pandering, indecent exposure, and other Article 120 and Article 120(c) offenses. The military’s problem with sexual assault has been garnering all the headlines and in many ways, rightfully so. No soldier deserves to be the victim of assault. However, on an equal footing, no soldier deserves to be the target of false allegations. They don’t have to have their career ruined and they certainly do not need to lose their freedom over the military’s desire to show they are making progress. If you are innocent, you must fight the charge like your life depends on it, because it does.
We defend cases such as conspiracy to defraud the military, BAH fraud, OHA fraud, extortion, larceny, wrongful appropriation, and more. Once again, false allegations and good old fashioned human error can lead to some very serious charges under the UCMJ. Sadly, we’ve seen officers try to save their careers by passing the buck on missing gear down to a senior NCO. In recent news, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, General Milley reported that he was stunned over the number of missing weapons in the military. All he’d need to do is look at the court martial dockets to know how big the problem is and that someone is always left holding the bill.
We represent service members facing charges including murder, manslaughter, aggravated assault, assault, and cases involving self-defense and defense of another. During an interview about his gallant charge in Korea, Col Millett remarked that he was shocked how easy a bayonet went in and out of a human body. While that might sound a little callous, the truth is that a pool cue, beer bottle, and even a good old fashioned stick can do serious damage in a fight. It doesn’t take much for a little bar scuffle to get out of control. Men who are trained to fight are often shocked at how good they are and unfortunately, it can cost them their careers.
We defend cases involving drug possession, drug distribution, drug importation, drug manufacturing, drug trafficking, positive urinalysis cases, tampering with urinalysis cases, and more. These cases often involve illegal controlled substances such as marijuana, LSD, methamphetamines, cocaine, ecstasy, molly, opioids, analogues, and more. We understand the need to regulate illegal substances in the military, but we are not here to judge how a Spec Ops team copes with some of the insane things they have been asked to do during the GWOT wars. A drug charge doesn’t have to be the end of a military career and if we ever get into a fight with a near peer force like China, a little marijuana use is not going to be our biggest problem. Once again, the Bilecki Law Group will fight to keep you in the fight.
These include charges such as fraternization, unauthorized absence (AWOL), disobeying a lawful order, conduct unbecoming an officer, and much more. This is what got Lewis Millet the unique honor of being one of the few people to have a court and a Medal of Honor on his service record. The man wanted to fight and that was his worst crime.
