Fort Jackson
Court Martial Defense

Fort Jackson, South Carolina, serves as a foundational training ground for the Army, blending diverse backgrounds as it prepares recruits for Basic Combat Training. It's a setting where many soldiers start their military careers, sometimes encountering UCMJ challenges along the way.

Defending Soldiers' Rights

Few Soldiers Think They’ll Ever Need A Court Martial Defense After Leaving Ft. Jackson

Not everyone realizes it, but Ft. Jackson is not only where over 50% of soldiers receive their basic training. It is also where 100% of modern Army drill instructors receive their qualifications to wear the revered Campaign Hat. With those two facts in hand, Ft. Jackson has essentially become the birthplace of the modern American soldier. Whether it is a soldier or a new Drill Sergeant born out of Ft. Jackson, it is safe to say that neither one could foresee the need for a staunch military court martial defense in their future. However, one thing is certain in the Army and that is you know not how your career is going to end.

Let’s just take Ft. Jackson alumni and Med al of Honor recipient, Desmond Doss, for example. You might recognize that name as his story was featured in the movie Hacksaw Ridge. Doss, a Seventh Day Adventist, refused to kill an enemy soldier or even carry a weapon. He made these objections known fro m d ay one, but continued to insist on serving. At the height of World War 2, it is likely that the Army believed they had a dud on their hands. However, the future would hold something very different for Doss and the legacy of Ft. Jackson.

As a conscientious objector, Doss continued to insist on serving and eventually was given a billet as a medic. Little did the Army know that they were saving the lives of countless men by keeping Doss in the fight. By the time he arrived on Okinawa, Doss had already received two Bronze Stars with a “V” for exceptional valor. On Okinawa, he is credited with saving the lives of between 50 and hundred soldiers. All this while being wounded 4 times and having 17 pieces of shrapnel in his body from kicking away a grenade that landed near his men. For these acts, he received the Medal of Honor while refusing to carry a weapon. So new soldiers and Drill Instructors hear this. You don’t know how your career is going to end and sadly, for some, that will include the need to fight off a military court martial.

The Reasons You Need a Staunch Military Court Martial Defense

As it pertains to the Bilecki Law Group, we are a boutique law firm that specializes in at-trial court martial defense. Meaning, we are happy to take the fight to a court martial and we’ll explain more on that in a bit. In the meantime, let’s tackle a few of the charges we routinely defend for soldiers out of Ft. Jackson and beyond.

  1. UCMJ Article 120 & 134 (Sex Offenses): We address sex offenses at Ft. Jackson, emphasizing justice for victims and the accused, recognizing that men comprise a significant portion of assault victims. We champion fair treatment and defense for all genders.
  2. UCMJ Article 121 (Fraud and Larceny): Defending against fraud and theft, we understand that financial pressures can lead soldiers to make regrettable decisions. We advocate for those who find themselves wrongly accused or in a tough spot due to systemic shortcomings.
  3. UCMJ Article 128 (Assault and Violent Crime): We represent soldiers in cases from assault to manslaughter, noting the youthful invincibility that can lead to trouble. We’re committed to defending those whose momentary lapses could unjustly define their futures.
  4. UCMJ Article 112a (Drug Crimes): Handling drug-related offenses, we recognize the diverse backgrounds and cultural norms recruits bring to Ft. Jackson. Our defense considers the complexity of adjusting to military life and the legal implications of past substance use.
  5. Punitive Articles of the UCMJ 77-134 (Military Specific Offenses): Covering a range of charges, we draw inspiration from historical figures like Doss, who defied expectations. We believe in fighting for the unforeseen potential and rightful futures of all service members.
