Louisiana Public Corruption Lawyers
Public Corruption Lawyer in Louisiana
Federal public corruption and bribery statutes apply at all levels of the United States government. From state and local to federal government officials, any illegal transaction involving public officials can potentially lead to fines, prison time, and irreparable damage to a public official’s reputation. However, public corruption and bribery statutes don’t just apply to government officials. They also apply to business owners and company executives who offer bribes to public officials—this action is considered a federal crime. Even if the bribe isn’t paid, the public officials and private citizens on both sides of a contemplated transaction can face conspiracy charges and life-altering penalties.
Public corruption is a serious state and federal crime that carries severe punishments based on the circumstances of the crime. Attorney Eric G.
