Bribery

Focused Miami Bribery Lawyer

Most people have a common-sense understanding as to what bribery is. But under Florida law, bribery means only to corruptly give, offer, or promise to any public servant, or if the person at issue is a public servant, then corruptly requesting, soliciting, or accepting any pecuniary or other benefit not authorized by law with the intent or purpose to influence the performance of a public servant.

So it’s important to realize that Florida law is really only aimed and restricting the bribing of public servants and officials, not necessarily private citizens, but also, it outlaws both the person or entity attempting to bribe as well as the public official receiving or soliciting the bribe. Both sides of the equation are covered. In Florida, bribery is a second-degree felony.

Something else to consider is that bribery can also include bid tampering, which is when someone’s focus was on influencing the competitive bidding process undertaken by any government agency for the procurement of commodities or services.

Florida is not the only government to outlaw bribery.

The federal government has, too. Bribery of those same public officials may also be a federal crime under 18 U.S.C. § 201. Investigations into bribery taken very seriously and are often exhaustive. Prosecutions can be intense. These cases are beatable, though, and hiring a criminal defense lawyer at Redavid Law, PLLC can go a long way in preparing a successful defense.
