Hawaii

Hawaii is no paradise for the service members accused of criminal offenses under the UCMJ. With 4% of the entire Hawaiian population affiliated with the military in some fashion, and with over half a dozen military bases located on the island, the Aloha State has steadily become one of the biggest hotbeds of court-martial activity in the nation.

Should you be accused of a criminal offense here, you will face an environment that is as hostile as a warzone:

  • The state is home to some of the most brutal and questionably legal sting operations in the country.
  • It ranks in the top 10 for states with the largest military presence, making it a primary target for government prosecutors looking to make the biggest impact.
  • The conviction rate for all courts-martial that take place in the state remains incredibly high—around 90%.

Bilecki & Tipon is based out of Hawaii and knows exactly what you’re up against. We’ve been defending service members from outrageous charges since day one. For a confidential consultation into your case, call our law offices TODAY.

Have You Been Accused of a Military Crime in Hawaii? Bilecki & Tipon Can Help.

Hawaii, with its large military presence and proximity to other military bases throughout the Pacific, has military courts working overtime to deal with the backlog of cases. The vast majority of these cases involve allegations of sexual assault, drug crimes, and financial fraud.
