We have experience defending a variety of larceny-based offenses, such as burglary, theft and theft of government property. There are a number of factors that are often important in these cases including proof of ownership of the property, the credibility of witnesses, the appropriateness of the search and seizure of evidence, and the ability of the prosecution to show the accused’s intent at the time of the alleged taking. We can assist you in preparing an effective defense in these cases focusing on these and other issues in the case.
If you are under investigation or facing charges for larceny/theft, theft of government property, burglary, housebreaking or some other theft offense, submit your case for our review or call us toll-free at 877-569-6941 for a free and confidential initial consultation with an experienced military criminal defense lawyer.
The following are some representative cases from our defense of these types of allegations:
An E-1 with a previous Article 15 was facing a Special Court-Martial for Housebreaking. Mr. George negotiated a pretrial agreement which reduced the offense to unlawful entry and resulted in the client receiving less than two weeks confinement, some hard labor without confinement and forfeitures.
An E-3 was charged with theft of government equipment. After Mr. George fully litigated a case before a panel of members, the client was acquitted.
An E-6 was accused of BAH fraud totaling more than $20,000 in addition to forgery, child abuse and fraud. Ms. McCarthy was able to negotiate an Article 15 for the client.
An E-4 was accused of conspiracy, larceny, housebreaking, and impeding an investigation. The case was referred to General Court Martial after an Article 32 investigation. As a result of intense negotiations betweenMs. McCarthy, the command, and trial counsel’s office, the client was given an Article 15 at which he was not found guilty.
