Organized Crime and Corruption
Public corruption charges can be brought against officials whether the person is employed at the municipal, county, state or federal government level. Public officials, politicians, and their clients, including business executives, risk of federal investigation as a result of their public duties and positions of trust. Therefore, common investigations and charges of public officials include bribery and public corruption crimes. These offenses may be investigated or filed as federal or state charges.Nicole Knox has successfully represented clients exposed to these charges in various phases of the federal criminal justice process.Federal prosecutors pursue cases of public corruption which are investigated by the FBI in an aggressive manner in order to show the public that government officials,, more than any others, should be severely punished when violating the law. They often become over zealous and accuse individuals who were on the periphery in any public corruption case. This allows the government to accuse public officials regardless of whether the official is involved at a minor or major level.Local, state, and federal law enforcement have the authority and jurisdiction to investigate public corruption. Also, prosecutors may pursue related charges of fraud, theft of government funds or bribery, money laundering, or tax evasion.
