Bribery Involving a Public Official, F.S. 838.015

As a second-degree felony, this crime is punishable by penalties ranging from probation to fifteen years in state prison.

What defense would an experienced Bribery Attorney use in a case involving a Public Official?

To succeed in its prosecution, the State must prove that the defendant entered into an agreement and paid the public official some monetary or other compensation to influence an official decision or future action.

The State cannot prevail if it tries to prosecute a person based on little or nothing more than a person’s successful solicitation of a mere promise from a public official.

In addition, the defendant may defeat the prosecution if he can show, through his lawyer, that the State obtained its evidence in violation of the Constitution.

In fact, such errors by agents of the State happen quite often.
