Offenses Involving Public Officials & Election Campaigns

As a public official, individuals are under close scrutiny for their actions. Any misstep is closely watched and often can make the headlines as well as lead to criminal charges. Even a small offense can have irreparable damage to an election campaign, erasing years of hard work and dedication serving the public. Any charge must be taken seriously and handled immediately to mitigate the damage in the public eye.

Although public officials can be under attack for any law they are perceived to break, there are specific federal laws that pertain to federal election campaigns. As with any federal case, the penalties can be higher and the laws are much different than state or local laws. Some offenses that are targeted to those involved in federal election campaigns include:

  • Accepting, giving or offering kickbacks or bribes
  • Misuse of government funds/embezzlement
  • Misuse of public office
  • Extortion
  • Honest service fraud

These are very serious allegations. For Georgia offenses involving public officials and election campaigns, lawyers who represent public officials need to be experienced in federal criminal law, not just state law.

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
