About Federal Bribery Charges
Bribery of a public official is a form of bribery covered in U.S. Code Title 18, Part 1, Chapter 11, Section 201. This offense is defined as directly or indirectly offering, giving or promising anything of value to a public official, with the intent of influencing the actions of that individual. This offense is punishable under federal law by up to 15 years of imprisonment as well as a fine of not more than three times the value of the bribe. The individual convicted of this crime may also be disqualified from holding any public office in the future. Either the person accused of offering or accepting a bribe may face federal charges for this offense. Even if money does not exchange hands, the simple offer or agreement may suffice.
