Bribing a Public Official Charges

Are you facing bribery charges? Bribery is considered a type of fraud and if you are facing investigation for bribing a public official or if you have already been charged, you should seek legal counsel as soon as possible. An experienced bribery attorney can guide you throughout the judicial process and help you feel more confident in the courtroom.
The Michigan bribery lawyers at The Law Offices of Barton Morris have significant experience handling these types of cases, and we know how damaging a conviction can be. In addition to threatening your livelihood, even simply being under investigation can negatively affect your reputation.
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 are convicted of accepting bribes, the consequences are equally severe.
Public officials who are prohibited from accepting bribes include:
- Law enforcement officers
- Government Inspectors
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 lawyer 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.

Mr. Morris and his associates legal knowledge is unsurpassed bar none. Although my case was unique, having been on the lam for sixteen years, Mr. Morris was able to prove that the lack of evidence was detrimental to the prosecution and all charges were dismissed. Mr. Morris happened to be the second lawyer that I contacted. The first lawyer said he would take my case for a $10K retainer fee and that I had a long road ahead of me. The next day, I contacted Mr. Morris and knew from our first conversation that I was in good hands with his representation. Stop shopping around and hire Barton Morris today!
