Sometimes public corruption cases make the news or are described on public websites.
To cite a few examples from 2019, listed on irs.gov:
- Two county commissioners accepted more than $4 million in bribes to create favorable conditions for 3 construction companies, including awarding a contract for more than $38.5 million in construction services to rehabilitate a water treatment plant.
- A county treasurer was caught writing more than $160,000 in checks to herself by forging the signatures of other employees, then attempting to hide her actions by altering official financial documents and asking that evidentiary bank statements not include images of the checks in question.
- A state district judge accepted thousands of dollars in cash bribes “in exchange for agreeing to release three of [an] attorney’s clients on bond.” Once the judge learned of the investigation against him, he attempted to contact the bribing attorney in order to agree on a false story.
- The father of a political candidate illegally contributed funds to his daughter’s campaign through obtaining unlawful corporate contributions, then misrepresenting those contributions as necessary service expenses.
Each of these individuals was sentenced to prison and penalized with large fines. Each lost his or her career and presumably experienced great personal losses as well. If you are in a position of public trust and have been charged with any form of public corruption, you should choose an Orlando criminal defense lawyer with ample experience handling public corruption cases.
