The Military Cases We Handle

Our office has experience handling a wide variety of military law-related cases. If you have been charged with any of the following criminal offenses you should contact Zachary A. Vandyke, P.A., today:

  • DUI/drunk driving If you are facing a DUI charge while serving in the military the penalties can often be worse than civilian penalties. While most states require a blood alcohol level of .08 percent to be considered legally impaired, the military can charge you with a DUI if any amount of alcohol found in your system impaired your ability to drive a vehicle.
  • Assault and battery – If you have threatened violence, or committed a physical act of violence against another, you could face battery charges resulting in an Article 32 investigation.
  • Drug offenses – Possession of an illegal substance as both a civilian and a military officer can carry heavy fines and penalties. If you were arrested for drug possession, your future freedoms depend on hiring an experienced Panama City military criminal defense attorney.
  • Weapons charges — You could face weapons charges for stealing a gun while on duty, or using the weapon in another criminal activity. Additionally, you could also be charged for brandishing a gun inappropriately. Contact a skilled criminal defense attorney immediately.
  • Fraud – Fraud offenses include larceny, bank or mail fraud, or OHA, DTS or BAH fraud. The military has recently been cracking down on fraudulent activities, especially fraudulent basic allowance for housing, overseas housing allowance and defense travel systems.
  • Officer misconduct – Officers and service men and women of the military are expected to uphold a higher moral conduct than most. When an officer is charged with misconduct, the penalties can be severe and life-altering. Do not leave your future up to chance, hire an experienced military law defendant who will fight for your rights.
