Miami Bribery Lawyer
Federal Defense Attorney in Miami
Although often associated with the realm of politics and public officials,
bribery may also be associated with sporting events, business, and the
judicial system. Federal law outlines a number of specific offenses related
to offering, accepting, agreeing to or giving bribes in exchange for an
official act. A simple example of bribery may include a coach or other
sports professional who offers a referee money in exchange for not calling
fouls on a particular team in a sporting event.
Penalties for Federal Bribery Crimes
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.
