Most military members have experienced errors from their servicing finance office. When there is an overpayment of pay or allowances, that is eventually established as a debt against the service member. There is no such thing as “bank error, my favor” in these cases. The military can collect the balance owed as an automatic allotment against wages. If the amount of debt is over a certain threshold, the military may view that as an act of larceny or fraud and can prosecute the individual in a court-martial.If the military member is discharged and still owes a debt, the government can continue to collect against the debt with penalties and interest.

In these cases, our military defense attorney‘s goal is to expose the errors in the finance office and to establish that our clients did not have criminal intent. That is because larceny requires the specific intent to steal property or money that belongs to the government or someone else. Successful resolutions may depend on the ability to pay back what is owed as quickly as possible. Our goal is to achieve winning resolutions without criminal prosecution.
