Missouri Bribery

A person commits the offense of bribery of a public servant if he or she knowingly offers, confers or agrees to confer upon any public servant any benefit, direct or indirect, in return for: ​ (1) the recipient's official vote, opinion, recommendation, judgment, decision, action or exercise of discretion as a public servant; or (2) the recipient's violation of a known legal duty as a public servant. Bribery of a public servant is a Class E Felony, punishable up to 4 years in prison. Hiring an experienced criminal defense attorney can help you evaluate the charges against you and guide you through the options that are available. In some cases, you may be able to get the charges thrown out all together or at the least have your charges reduced. Contact Howard Haake at (314) 325-9868 or (636) 332-5555 for a free consultation regarding your bribery charge and learn what rights and remedies are best for your situation.
