What Constitutes Bribery?

Sometimes referred to as “public corruption,” bribery of a public official is when an individual or company attempts to pay someone appointed to public office in order to receive some kind of benefit in return, such as influence over the official actions or decisions of that public official. If convicted, the individual charged can face large fines and possible imprisonment. Similarly, if you are convicted of accepting bribes, the consequences are equally severe.

Public officials who are prohibited from accepting bribes include:

  • Law enforcement officers
  • Government Inspectors
  • Commissioners
  • Administrators
  • Appraisers
  • Arbitrators
  • Executors
  • Receivers
  • Referees
  • Auditors
  • Trustees

Many circumstances can lead to bribery charges but, most commonly, bribery occurs when someone is seeking financial gain and/or trying to avoid prosecution for some other crime. Consequently, these cases can be incredibly complicated. Having an experienced lawyer by your side throughout the process can help you feel more confident and bring you the peace of mind that comes from knowing that you have a capable representative on your side.
