VIOLENT CRIME Defense in Korea

Aggravated assault, manslaughter, and murder charges demand aggressive legal representation

It’s easy to convince yourself—or let someone else convince you—that you should take the first plea deal you’re offered by the prosecution. It’s easy to think that the evidence and testimony is stacked too high against you; that the prosecution has the resources prepared to decimate any defense that your military defense law can come up with. It’s easy in the face of such charges to simply accept them and move on as best you can.

What you don’t realize is that years from now, you’ll still wonder whether you could’ve fought the charges against you. If the right defense team had come together, if a piece of evidence had been found, if a witness had come forward—you may still have your old life back.

Years from now, it will be too late. But we’re not talking about the future. We’re talking about today. And until you’re proven guilty, you’re still innocent in the eyes of the court.

Bilecki & Tipon doesn’t ask you to plead guilty. We ask you to fight back

Pleading guilty has and always will be a last resort for Bilecki & Tipon. Over the years we’ve made a name for ourselves for fighting tough cases and beating the odds. And in cases involving aggravated assault, manslaughter and murder charges, it becomes critical to have that fighter’s mentality when preparing for a case.

As with any trial, organizing a strong strategy beforehand is critical to success. Depending on what you’ve been charged with, Bilecki & Tipon will focus our resources and knowledge on strengthening that strategy through private defense investigations and forensic testing. We’ll assess your particular situation once we hear from you, but for reference, we’ve achieved successful results for our clients under Article 128, 119, and 118 of the UCMJ.

  • Article 128 of the UCMJ involves all assault and aggravated assault charges. Anything from a bar fight to self-defense could land you a charge under article 128. These charges often come with a loss of rank, punitive discharge, and even incarceration.
  • Article 119 of the UCMJ concerns manslaughter charges. Manslaughter may not carry as heavy a sentence as murder, but if convicted, you could still face a dishonorable discharge and years behind bars.

Article 118 of the UCMJ relates to all forms of premeditated murder that was planned in advance. What service members may not understand is that killing another individual unintentionally while in the middle of another crime could still count as a murder (not manslaughter) charge. If convicted, a service member could easily face life in prison.
