Bribery And Corruption Charges Defense Attorneys Serving Florida And Beyond
Under Florida law, bribery charges can be brought against an individual accused of trying to illegally influence public servants by offering money or some other benefit. Public servants can also be accused of bribery for agreeing to accept money or some other benefit in exchange for some type of act. Bribery charges can involve any number of factual scenarios, from a contractor paying a public official to obtain a government bid to law enforcement officers accepting payments in exchange for overlooking illegal activities.
Bribery is a second-degree felony under Florida law. If you have been arrested or charged with accepting or offering a bribe, or if you suspect that you are under investigation for bribery, it is critical that you hire an experienced criminal defense lawyer.
