Are you familiar with the crime of bribery?

If you aren't familiar with the crime of bribery, it's possible that you could get involved in a situation that lands you in hot water with the law.

In short, bribery is the acceptance or offer of something in value in exchange for influence on a person in position of power, such as a public official.

There are many forms of bribes, with payments of money in exchange for favorable treatment the most common. However, there are other types of bribes, outside of cash, including but not limited to tangible property.

There is a lot of gray area in regards to bribery, due to the fact that a written agreement is not necessary in order to prove that this crime occurred. For this reason, it's more than possible that a person could be charged with bribery despite the fact that he or she did not partake in this crime.

Note: While not always the case, the person accepting the bribe and offering the bribe can both be charged with a crime.

Due to the fact that bribery is such as serious crime, it's important that you avoid this charge at all costs.

If you find yourself in trouble with the law, it's essential to learn more about the elements of bribery as well as the potential punishment.

At our law firm, we have many years experience representing people who have been charged with bribery and other white collar crimes. With our help, our clients find it much easier to understand their situation and to devise a successful defense strategy.
