Overview of Federal Corruption Charges
Public corruption is a top prior for the FBI to investigate. Typical charges include bribery, real estate fraud, money laundering, extortion, and other crimes that involve public servants or officials. Public corruption investigations ordinarily involve complex undercover operations and surveillance by federal investigators who invoke the use of informants, tap phones, and monitor e-mails and bank accounts.
The rational for prosecuting public corruption charges is to ensure that public officials are using their office to promote public interest or confidence in the democratic office versus enriching themselves. Losing faith in the public sector goes against the heartland of the intended government purpose dating back to the inception of American law. Thus, because of the personal benefit derived from public corruption, the government ordinarily seeks severe punishment if you later stand convicted.
