Have you been branded a thief and a criminal by the United States government?

Charges of Larceny and Wrongful Appropriation under Article 121
Article 121 of the UCMJ governs the definitions and details of larceny and theft charges in the U.S. military. Your circumstances will further define the nature of the theft and the strategy the prosecution will take against you. Bilecki Law Group has fought—and won—dozens of larceny and theft cases involving everything from theft of military property to embezzlement charges and more. We’ve also defended service members accused of:
- Check fraud
- BX, PX or NEX theft
- Travel voucher & entitlement fraud
- Military property theft
- Wire fraud
Do not expect the government to go easy on you. They will be cracking the whip right from the start. Theft and larceny charges have spiked in recent years, and the government has attempted to curb military theft with increased convictions and harsher sentencing.
Your best hope is to fight back and win your case. To do that, you’ll need a team of attorneys that know how to assault the prosecution’s evidence and strategy.
Defending Service Members against Theft & Larceny Charges in the Military
But they’re also predictable, which gives the defense attorneys at Bilecki Law Group the opening they need to throw doubt on the government’s evidence and discredit their witnesses.
- Intent matters in a theft or larceny case. Did you mean to actually steal the money? Did you believe you were entitled to it? Could it be an accidental overpayment? Was there confusion about how reimbursements and entitlements worked?
- How the government collected the evidence matters as well. Were you caught up in a sting operation? Was the sting operation legal? Was there a proper search authorization applied for all searches and seizures?
- Regarding the witnesses, we have the possibility to look into their pasts with our own private investigations. Furthermore, we can hire forensic experts to review the money trail and pinpoint areas that throw doubt on the evidence against you.
Your future and reputation are being held, hostage. A not-guilty verdict will restore them. Fight back with the military defense attorneys at Bilecki Law Group and win your case in court!
Frequently Asked Questions On Theft & Larceny
Absolutely, yes. And we’d just like to add one thing: never gamble your future away on an assumption. Making assumptions about the government’s case almost always leads to a tragic outcome in court:
- Assuming that the government has overwhelming evidence against you will almost certainly provoke a confession in hopes of securing a plea bargain. But that plea bargain is often a terrible deal. And the best option almost always involves fighting—and winning—your case outright.
- The opposite—assuming the government has nothing on you—is equally damaging. Your overconfidence will likely lead to decisions like hiring a less capable defense attorney. Even worse, you may not hire a civilian attorney at all in hopes that the charges will just disappear.
Again, before you ever make an assumption about your case, contact the defense attorneys at Bilecki Law Group. Always get the truth before making such a life-altering decision involving a larceny or theft charge.
Article 121 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) defines larceny as any wrongful taking, obtaining or withholding of property, either from the military or another person. Any form of theft, embezzlement, wrongful appropriation or obtaining by false pretense could be defined as larceny under Article 121.
