Larceny & Financial Fraud
Are you a military service member that has been accused of larceny, financial fraud, or some other UCMJ theft offense?
You’ve probably been told by your command or investigators that all the evidence points to you—that you’re 100% guilty. You’ve probably been abandoned and made to feel like your career is over. Nobody wants to lift a finger to help you. Even though you have faithfully and honorably served your country, you’re being pronounced guilty instead of presumed innocent.
Do not give up! It is not hopeless no matter what others may say or think. They are against you.

Larceny, wrongful appropriation, embezzlement and other forms of theft are mostly covered under Article 121, UCMJ. Article 122, UCMJ, covers robberies. Article 123, UCMJ, covers forgery. The essence of all of these is basically the wrongful taking—usually of money or property—from either the United States Government or another person.
Make no mistake, stealing/theft offenses are not taken lightly in the military. The government and its hand-picked prosecutors will come at you with everything they have in order to secure a conviction and a severe sentence. A general or special court martial is likely. A conviction will likely pop up on any background check and therefore will probably follow a service member for the rest of their life.
If you’re in this position. If the government is coming after your career, your future, and your freedom, you have to decide whether you want to fight with an experienced military defense attorney on your side, or just submit to the government’s often underhanded pressures. If you want to fight, contact our office today to see how we would defend you against the larceny or fraud charges brought against you.
