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. Here at the Bilecki Law Group, we believe in justice and will be the first to tell you that victims of sexual assault deserve justice. We’ll also be the first to tell you that prosecuting an innocent Soldier is not justice.
The new emphasis on rooting out sexual assault in the military is well intended, but it is quickly leading to an atmosphere where an allegation is all it takes to end a career. Moreover, there is often more to the story than the allegation itself. If you are innocent of these charges, you need to fight like an angry dentist on a hot Pacific night. Hold the line. Don’t give up. Fight.
We defend cases such as conspiracy to defraud the military, BAH fraud, OHA fraud, extortion, larceny, wrongful appropriation, and more. Court martial lawyer Tim Bilecki used to live and manage a law firm in Hawaii for over a decade, we understand that living in Hawaii is expensive. Unfortunately, that can cause some good men and women to play a little lose with BAH.
BAH fraud is one of the more common charges we defend out of Triple Army Medical Center and there is often more than meets the eye to the charges. We believe that our men and women in uniform are more than the sum of charges against them. You can fight BAH fraud charges and you need to seek counsel before you admit guilt.
We represent service members facing charges including murder, manslaughter, aggravated assault, assault, and cases involving self-defense and defense of another. Somewhere at Triple Army Medical Center, there is a dentist reading the story of Captain Salomon and getting motivated. Just don’t get so motivated that you try to take on a squad of Marines from K-Bay out in town tonight.
Look, military fights happen and unfortunately, they can spiral out of control quickly. When someone grabs a pool cue, beer bottle, or chair, the charges can quickly escalate. We instill the fighting spirit in our men and women who wear the uniform and our medical personnel are not any different. A fight shouldn’t be the end of your career and certainly not while we have looming threats rising in the Pacific Rim.
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.
Hawaii has a fairly substantial sized problem with illicit drug use and this is one of the more frustrating cases we see. Oftentimes, it is a civilian that leads our military personnel into some trouble with drug use and those civilians rarely get so much as a slap on the wrist. Meanwhile, it’s our men and women in uniform who have to stand tall before the UCMJ. These are charges you should fight and let’s get the full story out into the light.
These include charges such as fraternization, unauthorized absence (AWOL), disobeying a lawful order, conduct unbecoming an officer, and much more. If a military lawyer were standing beside Captain Salomon that night and advised him that it was “illegal” for him to fight back, do you think Salomon would have listened? Look, we understand the UCMJ exists for a reason. We just believe that there is more to the story and you shouldn’t lose a career, retirement, or your freedom over a silly charge.
