Types of Corruption Charges

Corruption occurs when a person holds a particular position of authority within an organization and that power is mishandled, leading the individual to gain money or additional power. The following are major types of corruption:

  • Political corruption
  • Corporate corruption
  • Law enforcement corruption

Although some of these charges can be filed on the state level, any corruption that crosses state lines may then be considered a federal case. Additionally, many cases involving political corruption will go before a federal court due to the nature of the crime.
