Schofield Barracks, home to the 25th Infantry Division and the largest Army installation on the islands, is no stranger to courts-martial. Every year more Army personnel learn the just how brutal these court systems can be.
Many Army personnel assume they can fight these charges on their own or with an inexperienced attorney.
Unfortunately, this only cements their fate in court and all but guarantees some of the harshest punishment possible
- Dishonorable discharge is a common punishment among the punitive articles of the UCMJ. Even if you escape such a characterization, a bad-conduct or other-than-honorable discharge could mean the end of your military benefits.
- You and your family may live near Schofield Barracks. You could lose your home and your salary and be forced back to the mainland with little to show for your time in the armed forces.
- All of the above, unfortunately, is the least of your worries. Incarceration, sex offender registration, and other punishments are always possible should you be accused and convicted of a crime in the Army.
You may have traveled thousands of miles to come to Schofield only to be court-martialed and sent to prison. Protecting yourself at all costs is now your top priority. Call Bilecki & Tipon TODAY for a free consultation into your case.
