DTS, bah, and oha FRAUD Offenses in Korea
the government is looking for scapegoats. But you don’t deserve to
be made an example of
Defense Travel System (DTS) fraud, Overseas Housing Allowance (OHA) fraud,
and Basic Allowing for Housing (BAH) fraud have existed for years, but
never before has the military spent such vast resources in an attempt
to dissuade service members from committing them. A blind audit, a sting
operation, a suspicious pattern—it just takes one mistake or wrong
turn to wind up on the defense end of a court martial. And when the government
gets you there, they won’t stop until you’re convicted.
If you agree to a plea deal or offer up only a token defense in court,
you may regret it for the rest of your life. The punitive discharge that
likely follows will be seen by every civilian job you apply for. Huge
fines could leave you indebted for the foreseeable future. And it’s
very possible that you’ll face a prison sentence of months or even years.
If you think your case is hopeless, it’s imperative that you contact
Bilecki & Tipon as soon as possible. No matter how much evidence the
government claims they have against you, it’s very possible that
you can secure a better outcome for yourself in court. But you’ll
never know what could have been unless you get serious. You’ll never
know unless you fight back.
Fraud charges can happen to anyone, at any time
Bilecki & Tipon is extraordinarily experienced in financial fraud and
larceny charges regardless of the extent of the crime—or whether
the crime was committed at all. The government tends to throw out a wide
net when conducting sting operations and audits, and even a simple mistake
on the part of the service member could lead to a red flag. It doesn’t
help that the Joint Federal Travel Regulations (JFTR) are extremely complicated,
especially when it comes to the DTS, OHA, and BAH. A wide margin of error
is possible when determining how much is paid out by the military in these
situations. In Korea, this is even more complicated due to the nature
of unaccompanied tours.
Regardless of whether you knowingly or unknowingly committed the fraudulent
activity, Bilecki & Tipon can quickly determine a strategy to employ
during your trial. We’ve successfully defended previous clients
in Korea from fraud and larceny charges in the past, and our financial
and legal background allows us to immediately take to the offensive when
your hearing begins.
