Bribery

We’re all familiar with the story of the parent who gives the child candy to get him or her to behave. This form of bribery is innocent and perfectly legal – and may even prompt a smile from those who understand the plight of parenthood. Federal bribery charges, on the other hand, are nothing to smile about. They are serious charges with very serious consequences.

The law defines bribery as the act of giving something of value to influence the actions of a person in a public or legal role. That something of value could be a variety of things, from money to government contracts to votes on a controversial subject matter. In a federal bribery case, the giver and/or the recipient can be charged.

Penalties for a conviction typically entail a fine that represents three times the value of the bribe, along with a sentence of not more than 15 years in prison. If you are charged in a federal bribery case, you need an experienced federal criminal defense attorney from Conaway & Strickler, P.C., to help with your defense.

Atlanta Bribery Lawyers

The Atlanta bribery lawyers at Conaway & Strickler, P.C., approach all of our federal criminal cases with one thing in mind – we want to get the charges against you dismissed. And if that doesn’t happen, the next best thing is to get the charges mitigated. We have an excellent track record in this area.

Our first line of defense is an independent investigation of the facts in the case. We look at the paper trail to see if there are any gaps or mistakes. We look at search warrants and whether they were properly obtained and carried out. We examine witness testimony to see if it will hold up in court. If necessary, we will meet with federal prosecutors and negotiate a settlement. One or more of these approaches usually ends up working in your favor.

We are eager to get started on your defense. Call our Atlanta law office today to set up a free initial consultation.

Our family wants to thank Conaway and Strickler for their professional and hard work in this case. We never thought this nightmare was going to be over so soon. With receiving a No Bill from the Grand Jury, my employer has given me my job back. This has been by far a true miracle. The R. Family
