California Criminal Penalties for Public Corruption

Whether you are accused of rigging a contract, theft of government funds, extortion, or another criminal offense considered under the scope of public corruption, the criminal penalties for a conviction are severe. Depending on the offense and specifics of your case, you may spend a substantial length of time in prison. Some crimes are prosecuted at the federal level, which means even harsher penalties.

Because public corruption is closely related to bribery, you may also be subject to steep fines, forfeiture of office, and more. A conviction not only results in serious criminal penalties, but ruin of your career and reputation as well.

Client Reviews
I moved to another state and missed court. They issued a warrant. I called the Justice Firm and spoke to Joe Virgilio and he was very helpful. The they were able to get the warrant removed and fixed it so I got probation and could go back to work. Neal R.
My mom called the Justice Firm. I had a public defender who was pushing me to take a bad deal. My new attorney Mr Browning was able to get my case dismissed. They also gave me a number for a bondsman who gave a great price so I could get out and get back to work. Carlos G.
My son had the lawyers at the Justice Firm represent him. They were really good. Mr. Hunt always calls me back to answer my questions and let me know what is going on. We have referred several people to them over he last few years and they all thank me for it. They work with the district attorneys to get good results. Rick Q.
