Camp Yongsan-Casey Trusts Bilecki Law Group For Court Martial Defense

Approximately 13 miles from the DMZ on the Korean peninsula, when the shit hits the fan it will be the hard chargers at USAG Yongsan-Casey that will be on the front lines of a new hot war in Korea. They are thousands of miles away from home and a little more than a dozen miles from millions of North Korea soldiers who feel it a righteous honor to kill them. That’s why when they are facing off with the military justice system and fighting for their career, livelihood, and freedom that they deserve the very best military court martial defense on the planet. Bilecki Law Group flies in heavy-hitting attorneys from stateside to fight for those who are on the front lines fighting for our freedom. Fighting a military court martial is already a perilous affair and when you are stationed thousands of miles from friends and family it can seem all the more impossible. We show up and fight by your side so that you don’t have to do this alone.

Fighting A Military Court Martial At Camp Casey Is A No Holds Barred Affair

We love military history here at Bilecki and the Korean War is full of countless acts of inexplicable gallantry that inspire us to action. When we say fighting a court martial at Camp Casey is a no holds barred affair, we think of British Soldier Bill Speakman who earned his nation’s highest military honor in Korea.

In November of 1951, his unit found himself facing one human wave of enemy soldiers after the other. The fighting was so intense that most of the fighting was hand to hand as Speakman reported there was not enough time to pull back the bolt of the rifle. Finally, out of grenades and ammunition, Speakman turned to a unique weapon in order to continue the fight.

The British Army back then liked to increase the morale of its troops by delivering beer to the front lines and the night before, Speakman and the boys had put a few back. Out of ammunition, he stood up with his six foot six frame and began hurling empty beer bottles at the charging enemy. Remarkably, Speakman’s desperate acts of aggression gave his unit enough time to retreat to better positions. He was awarded the Victoria Cross for his action that day and the respect of any beer drinker who saw him in action.

What Charges Can You Fight And Defend Out of USAG Yongsan-Casey?

So when we say fighting is a no holds barred affair we mean. You have to be ready to fight and claw for every advantage you can get. Military prosecutors already boast a high conviction rate and if you play by their rules you will lose. You have to fight back and get experienced military court martial defense counsel by your side. Below you’ll see just a few of the charges we defend out of Camp Casey and we think you’ll quickly see that we don’t scare easily.

  1. UCMJ Article 120 or Article 134 (Sex Offenses) – 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.
    As a result of the military’s Sexual Harassment/Assault Response and Prevention (SHARP) campaign, soldiers are at Camp Case are seeing their lives destroyed on mere rumor. Allegations are being treated as fact and even when there is not enough evidence to convict, commands will still end your career through administrative measures.
    Unfortunately, some service members have discovered that their ticket out of Camp Casey and back home is a false allegation that destroys another Soldier’s life along the way. The way the SHARP campaign is being executed has been a complete disaster and what’s happening as a result is not justice.
  2. UCMJ Article 121 (Fraud and Larceny) – We defend cases such as conspiracy to defraud the military, BAH fraud, OHA fraud, extortion, larceny, wrongful appropriation, and more. It is easy for a soldier to make an administrative error and have command see it as some heist plot on grand theft auto. In other cases it is a young service member trying to take care of their family and got a little creative with BAH. In any case, you can fight these charges and win.
  3. UCMJ Article 128 (Assault and Violent Crime) – We represent service members facing charges including murder, manslaughter, aggravated assault, assault, and cases involving self-defense and defense of another. The reality is that Soldiers like to fight. They just do and that is a reality of the service.
    Unfortunately, these charges can escalate quickly when a makeshift weapon like a beer bottle gets involved. Sure, Bill Speakmen was awarded the Victoria Cross for using a beer bottle. However, if a soldier ties that while bar hopping in the Ville he’s going to be facing serious charges.
  4. UCMJ Article 112a (Drug Crimes) – 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.
    South Korea takes drug charges seriously and if you find yourself facing such charges in South Korea, it is essential that you get experienced counsel on your side that understands the various military and civilian jurisdictions at play. It is almost always the case that there is some civilian influence involved and yet, it is so often that it is our military service members that suffer the most extreme punishments.
  5. Punitive Articles of the UCMJ 77-134 (Military Specific Offenses) – These include charges such as fraternization, unauthorized absence (AWOL), disobeying a lawful order, conduct unbecoming an officer, and much more. Much like other overseas installations, minor infractions of the UCMJ are treated as major offenses at Camp Casey. This is due in part by the desire to minimize negative sentiment among the local population about U.S. troop presence.

How To Fight Back And Win Against A Court Martial At Camp Casey

As indicated earlier, your only choice is to fight and fight with everything that you have. Military prosecutors love an easy win and they hate a fight. That’s why this is exactly what we give them when Bilecki takes on the case. We’ve developed a reputation for our brawling approach to a court martial trial and often, we can keep the case from ever seeing the courtroom with this aggressive approach.

Namesake and founder, Tim Bilecki, spent years inside the military justice system as a Senior Defense Counsel for the Army in Korea. He will tell you first hand just how stacked the odds are in favor of the prosecution. They know that local options for top notch military court martial defense around Camp Casey are few and they play that to their advantage. That’s why when they see you’ve flown in experienced counsel from the United States to fight by your side they almost shit their pants. They know they have a fight on their hands and they don’t like it. They wanted an easy win and we denied them.

You have to fight and this is true even if you did make a mistake and made a poor decision. The truth is that if 20 of your buddies took a cell phone video of you running naked through the Ville screaming, “We’re going streaking”, you’re in trouble. However, you didn’t destroy any property, you didn’t get into a fight and you didn’t trash the Soju Kettle bar. You don’t have to accept the worst possible outcome they can give you. You can still fight and secure for yourself the best possible outcome.

If you are facing investigation or court martial out of Camp Casey it is a big deal. You need to get experienced counsel by your side and you need to get them involved early in the case. If that’s you then we encourage you to reach out to us. We’ll give you a free defense strategy session and we’ll shoot you straight on exactly what you are facing. If there is an off-ramp to keep this from escalating, we’ll show you the way. But if the prosecution wants to push it, then we fight like hell. We cede to them nothing and take from them everything. You may very well love the military, but you cannot coexist with a military justice system that is out to destroy you. You have to fight back. Give us a call and get us into that fight.

In Korea, we see everything from BAH fraud, sex assault, to misconduct stemming from a drunken night in the Ville.

We travel to South Korea multiple times every year. Our attorneys know the Seoul area well and won’t need to be babysat upon arrival at Incheon Airport.

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