What Is Larceny?
Larceny is defined as the unlawful taking of property with the intent to permanently deprive the owner of the item. Military service members may come under suspicion or face charges related to theft of personal or government property. The penalties for these offenses can be severe.
Penalties for Military Member Convicted of Larceny
In some cases, the penalty can be imposed under a nonjudicial punishment (NJP), in which case a minor punishment can be expected. If you are convicted of larceny involving military property valued at $500 or less, the penalties include confinement for 3 months, along with forfeiture of 2/3 of your pay for 3 months.
