What Constitutes Bribery?

Sometimes referred to as “public corruption,” bribery of a public official is when an individual or company attempts to pay someone appointed to public office in order to receive some kind of benefit in return, such as influence over the official actions or decisions of that public official.

If convicted, the individual charged can face large fines and possible imprisonment.

Similarly, if you’re convicted of accepting bribes, the consequences are equally severe.

Public officials who are prohibited from accepting bribes include:

  • Law enforcement officers
  • Government Inspectors
  • Commissioners
  • Administrators
  • Appraisers
  • Arbitrators
  • Executors
  • Receivers
  • Referees
  • Auditors
  • Trustees

Many circumstances can lead to bribery charges but, most commonly, bribery occurs when someone is seeking financial gain and/or trying to avoid prosecution for some other crime.

Consequently, these cases can be incredibly complicated.

Having an experienced team by your side throughout the process can help you feel more confident and bring you the peace of mind that comes from knowing that you have a capable representative on your side.

Barton was amazing and I could not have had the positive outcome without his guidance. His team is prompt and great to work with. He even called while out of the country on vacation, which I feel shows he went above and beyond what someone might expect from their attorney. Experienced and cares! I would highly recommend Barton!

Very professional. I came and spoke to Barton Morris about my situation and my case. I asked him if he was willing to help me. He asked about the details and my background and history. He give me a positive confidence he can help me and my odds. His price is reasonable. He’s not one of those hole in the wall lawyers who treat you as a number. You are a human being with a personal life. You treats you as a valued client no matter how big or small the case.

I had Mike Norman as my lawyer for a case. I just wanted to come on here and thank him for doing his best for me. I am grateful during this stressful time. I’ve used Barton Morris as a lawyer about 11 years ago and he was awesome which is why we came back. I do recommend!

Extremely knowledgeable and very helpful when it comes to navigating the complicated nature of cannabis businesses in Michigan. I met with Barton where he answered all my questions about the pre-qualification application, and was prompt in answering subsequent questions through email after the meeting was completed. I certainly plan to continue utilize Barton’s knowledge in the future.

Just sitting here on my balcony. A bit chilly but sunny and beautiful. I am ever so grateful to have 100% freedom. Wasn’t sure I would ever meet this day. Hiring you(and your team) was the best decision I have ever made. You are a true master of your trade. As you sit with your beautiful family on Thanksgiving know that this year I am truly thankful of my freedom and the choice to hire Barton Morris. Thanks again. I will never forget what you have done for me.
