Local Political Corruption Put a Dedicated Attorney on Your Side

Political Corruption Defense Lawyer in Abilene, TX

Former Prosecutor Working for You in Abilene, San Angelo, Lubbock, & Amarillo

Those who are elected or appointed to public office are expected to provide honest and ethical leadership within their official capacity. These individuals, however, can be subject to conflicting information regarding acceptable behavior. These conflicts can involve any number of areas, from the appropriate receipt of gifts, campaign contributions, and more. If these activities are investigated by state or federal officials, these actions can be viewed as bribery or as other crimes that call for formal criminal charges. Such charges can end in the loss of your reputation, criminal penalties, and the end of a political career.

At Keith & Lorfing, we provide experienced and skilled legal representation to individuals in public office facing allegations of any kind of corruption. We understand that the mere allegation of such behavior can damage your career and future before you even have a chance to prove your innocence. The consequences can extend well beyond that which is why our priority is early intervention in your case to pursue a resolution that does not involve negative publicity and formal charges. Should that be impossible, our trial-tested former federal prosecutor can work vigorously on crafting the most effective defense available based on the facts and circumstances of your case.

Call Keith & Lorfing at (325) 308-6960 or contact us online to arrange for a case evaluation with our Abilene political corruption attorney.

Political Corruption Cases in Texas

Political corruption charges can be aimed at legislators, other state and local government office holders, law enforcement agency officials, those who head up public agencies, and anyone else holding a public office. They can be levied at public servants who have just become elected as well as longtime public officials.

Examples of corruption accusations brought against public servants can include but are not limited to:

  • Bribery
  • Kickbacks
  • Conspiracy
  • Campaign finance crimes
  • Misappropriation/misuse of public funds
  • Extortion
  • Embezzlement
  • Government contract fraud
  • Falsification of documents
  • Tampering of government documents
  • Law enforcement violence or brutality
  • Perjury
  • Other types of official misconduct
  • Other types of fiduciary breaches
  • Other types of violations against one’s oath of office

An example of political corruption that can be an innocent mistake may relate to political fundraising. The laws regarding this area are often complex, ambiguous, and very prohibitive. Mistakes can be made over something as simple as the amount of a campaign donation or the acceptance of a dinner or birthday present. An innocent lapse in a campaign donation disclosure can lead to an accusation of bribery. Acceptance of a gift from a constituent can likewise be misconstrued as a crime leading to formal charges, a conviction, and criminal penalties.
