Blackmail is the act of threating embarrassment or financial loss to another person unless they follow your demands. Under 18 U.S. Code § 873, “Whoever, under a threat of informing, or as a consideration for not informing, against any violation of any law of the United States, demands or receives any money or other valuable thing, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned.” For committing federal blackmail, you face up to $100,000 in fines, up to a year in prison, or both.
You may be charged with bribery if you are accused of giving, offering, or soliciting something of value in order to influence a public official to act in a certain way. Under the Federal Bribery Statute, the government must prove that you acted with corrupt intent to engage in a quid pro quo. Based on the specific facts of your case, you could face serious fines, and/or up to two years in federal prison.
