Bribery and corruption offenses are relatively wide-reaching, covering a broad range of white collar crimes. In general, however, bribery is defined as the attempt or actual offering of a benefit (including a monetary benefit) in exchange for a public servant violating his/her duty, while corruption involves the use of public office for personal gain, typically by accepting bribes. These crimes are punished harshly in both Texas state courts and federal courts throughout the nation.
