Know Your Rights

Defending against bribery charges requires a strategic approach, and several common defenses may be employed to challenge the allegations. 

Common Defenses:

  • Lack of Intent: Arguing that there was no intent to commit bribery. This defense asserts that any actions taken were without the purpose of influencing the recipient. 
  • Insufficient Evidence: Challenging the prosecution's case by asserting that there is not enough credible evidence to prove the elements of bribery beyond a reasonable doubt. 
  • Gifts or Gratuities: Distinguishing between a legitimate gift or gratuity and an illegal bribe. This defense focuses on demonstrating that any exchanges were customary and did not involve corrupt intent. 
  • Ambiguity of the Offer: Arguing that the offer or exchange lacked clarity and did not constitute an unequivocal act of bribery.
