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.
