Fraud is one of the more difficult of the offenses to prove under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. One of the reasons it can be difficult to prove is because the Government has to show you had the “intent” to commit larceny or somehow defraud the Government. Proving “intent” or what was going through the mind of a suspect can be difficult to do, and unless the Government has the documentation and witnesses to prove what that suspect was really thinking, the Government will have a hard time satisfying its burden of proving beyond a reasonable doubt that an accused was committing fraud.
If the evidence of fraud or larceny doesn’t exist, then the Government can easily speculate that a service member is trying to commit the offense. This frequently leads to innocent service members being accused of a crime they didn’t commit.
Many service members are falsely accused of fraud or larceny because the finance or property tracking systems in place throughout the large military bureaucracy are too complicated or very simply broken.
