PUBLIC CORRUPTION

 When defending a public figure, often a politician or community leader, in defense of public corruption charges, Ms. Azari not only provides the most skilled and comprehensive defense to her client, but she does so while managing the non-legal attacks on her client and his/her reputation by the media in the court of public opinion.  

Given the tremendous impact public corruption has on democracy and national security, the government treats and prosecutes this type of offense very seriously. Public corruption is one of the most heavily investigated federal offenses and those suspected of this crime may be monitored and investigated for a long span of time before charges are brought to indictment. If you have any reason to believe that you are being investigated for public corruption or may be exposed as a result of another investigation you are aware of, contact the Law Office of Sara Azari immediately for a consultation.

 

Public corruption involves a breach of public trust and/or abuse of position by federal, state, or local officials and their private sector accomplices. By broad definition, a government official, whether elected, appointed or hired, may violate federal law when he/she asks, demands, solicits, accepts, or agrees to receive anything of value in return for being influenced in the performance of their official duties.

 

Public corruption is considered to be a type of white collar crime because of the political and sophisticated environment in which it occurs. Public Corruption offenses include, without limitation:

  • Bribery

  • Embezzlement

  • Extortion

  • Fraud

  • Illegal Kickbacks

  • Money Laundering
