Article 134 – Bribery and Graft

Bribery and Graft are listed under Article 134 and pertain to both the receiving and offering of influence or compensation. Prosecutors are required to prove that the accused held an official position in the military and that the matters were related to U.S. interests and could damage the standing of the U.S. Military.

Sadly, given the global footprint of the U.S armed forces and the vast defense budget, bribery is one of the most common offenses that enlisted members are accused off.

Graft involves compensation for services performed in an official matter when no compensa- tion is due.

If you or someone you know is facing Article 124a charges for ‘Bribery’ you need to speak with a Military defense attorney right away.
