Article 121 UCMJ Larceny Attorneys

What Is Article 121 of UCMJ?

UCMJ Article 121 covers both larceny and wrongful appropriation. Under Article 121, any member of the USAF who removes another's property from their possession without their consent may face charges. However, the laws are not as simple as they seem. Financially motivated crimes are taken very seriously in the military and if you have been accused or arrested, you're likely facing a tough time ahead.

Depending on the circumstances, you may be at risk for:

  • The loss of your military salary, pension, and healthcare
  • Bad conduct or dishonorable discharge
  • Possible confinement

UCMJ Larceny & Wrongful Appropriation

The two criminal offenses (larceny and wrongful appropriation) handled under Article 121 have factors must be used to prove that you are guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. In order to reach a conviction, the prosecution must show that you obtained or took property from another, that the property belonged to them, that it was of a specific value, and that you did so purposefully to deprive them of the property.

The main difference between larceny and wrongful appropriation is that with a larceny charge, it must be proven that you did not have the intent of returning the property. Wrongful appropriation charges involve the taking of property to use as leverage or related nefarious purposes while intending to return it.
