Miami Federal Crimes Lawyer
Have you been charged with bribery?
Bribery is a serious criminal offense as it involves the offer, receipt or solicitation of something deemed valuable for the sole purpose of influencing the action of a public official in his/her direct legal duties. The bribery of a public official or witness is a federal crime covered by U.S. Code Title 18, Part 1, Chapter 11, Section 201. A public official can be a Member of Congress, a Delegate, an elected or appointed city official, as well as any officer, employee or individual authorized to act for or on behalf of the United States government. Anyone convicted of bribery can expect to face up to 15 years in prison, in addition to a fine worth up to three times the value of the bribe itself.
Bribes can come in many forms including cash, personal favors, gifts, vacations, kickbacks, the promise of a later payment, or anything the recipient views as valuable. Written agreements are not required for the prosecution to prove that bribery did in fact take place.
