Bribery Laws & Penalties
The Nevada crime of bribery is subdivided into four specific crimes, depending
on whether the parties are judicial officers or public officials and whether
the bribe is associated with a business or sporting event.
For example, commercial bribery is when a company employee is offered money
in exchange for making business decisions without permission or involvement
of the employer. It is considered a misdemeanor, punishable by a maximum
jail sentence of one year and fines of up to $1,000.
On the other hand, bribery in sporting events is both a federal crime and
state crime. In Nevada, sports bribery is a category C felony, punishable
by a maximum prison sentence of five years and fines of up to $10,000.
