Torii Station
Court Martial Defense

At Bilecki Law Group, We believe every service member has earned their right to an aggressive defense on their day in court. We specialize in taking the fight to the prosecution and winning cases that others said were unwinnable.

Torii Station History and Court-Martial Activity

Torii Station, the largest U.S. Army garrison in Okinawa, Japan, holds strategic significance as a distribution hub for military goods and fuel, supporting service members across the prefecture. However, its prominence has made it a focal point for court-martial activity and prosecution by U.S. Military authorities. In recent years, even minor offenses have led to severe sentencing, with operations like the NCIS’s “To Catch a Predator” sting continuing to ensnare Army Soldiers.

The consequences of a conviction at Torii Station can be dire, including the loss of substantial military benefits, incarceration for extended periods, and irreparable damage to one’s military career. Despite exemplary service records, service members facing charges risk significant setbacks, underscoring the importance of robust legal defense. Our law firm stands ready to advocate for U.S. Service Members accused of military crimes, offering confidential consultations to navigate the complexities of court-martial proceedings and safeguard their rights.

Combatting UCMJ Misuse

Army men trust Bilecki Law Group for court defense

Bilecki Law Group has been serving U.S. Service Members at Torii Station since day one. While still on active duty, Mr. Bilecki was responsible for setting up the first every Trial Defense Service field office in Okinawa, Japan. We’ve become one of the most trusted law firms throughout the Pacific for some very good reasons, Here’s how we stand up for you:

  1. UCMJ Article 120 or Article 134 (Sex Offenses): We tackle challenging cases from sexual assault to indecent exposure, fighting against a culture of conviction without evidence, protecting careers and reputations of those unjustly accused.
  2. UCMJ Article 121 (Fraud and Larceny): From BAH fraud to wrongful appropriation, we understand the nuances that lead to financial misconduct charges and provide a robust defense against oversimplified prosecutorial narratives.
  3. UCMJ Article 128 (Assault and Violent Crime): Recognizing the reality of conflicts that escalate into charges, we defend against accusations from simple brawls to more severe confrontations, ensuring a single moment doesn’t define your future.
  4. UCMJ Article 112a (Drug Crimes): In a country where drug prevalence mirrors that of the U.S., we defend service members caught in drug-related charges, often stemming from being in the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong people.
  5. Punitive Articles of the UCMJ 77-134 (Military Specific Offenses): Facing minor infractions can lead to major consequences on foreign soil; we challenge disproportionate penalties for actions that would be minor stateside.

FAQs About Military Court Martial Defense In Japan

The most common criminal offenses that we defend against are sexual assault crimes, drug crimes (everything from possession and use to distribution), larceny and financial fraud crimes (especially OHA and BAH fraud), and less frequently, assault and battery charges.

Absolutely. We travel to Okinawa all the time. Our Okinawa court martial defense lawyers have been to Okinawa over 50 times defending service members stationed there. We know the area, know the commands and know the culture. We don’t need to be babysat once we land in Naha. When we land, we are prepared to work and ready to begin.

“If you play the game by their rules and on their battlefield, you’ve got a 10% or less chance of winning. Don’t play by their rules. Give them the last thing they were looking for... a FIGHT!”
