Explaining Bribery Under Arizona Law

What is bribery? In Arizona, a bribe occurs when one person promises or offers money, or another benefit to a second person in exchange for certain favors. A bribe is different from an independent gift because the gift in a bribe is contingent upon the giver of the bribe receiving some sort of beneficial treatment from its recipient.

People can face bribery charges if they offer or receive or agree to receive a bribe. They can also face prosecution if they solicit a bribe by directly asking for something in exchange for their services.

Bribery charges are often complicated. They can involve both federal and state law. Working with a well-versed attorney who understands all of the nuances involved in bribe charges is critical.

Examples of Bribes

Regardless of the type of bribe allegation, a dedicated team of Gilbert attorneys could work tirelessly to defend the charges.

Bribery of a Public Servant

Many times, the person offered the bribe is a public official or servant. Police officers are frequently the target of bribes. For example, people try to bribe police officers to look the other way by offering them money to make a traffic violation disappear.

Other public officials can also face bribery charges when someone wants to influence them to alter their behavior. An example would be a company offering a bribe to a member of a local zoning commission. A construction company that tried to cut corners by not following through with the required environmental tests could bribe a zoning commission member to ignore the oversight and grant the company a waiver that permits them to build.

Judges presiding over a trial or even jury members can also face bribes to influence the outcome of a case.

Commercial Bribery

Bribery also occurs in the business world. People can face commercial bribery charges when they offer a worker money or property to influence their actions. Sometimes, people offer or solicit bribes for workplace promotions. Other bribes occur when people pursue kickbacks in exchange for certain behavior.
